Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re incarcerated, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is decided by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must agree to be there for your court date, and you are not allowed to leave the area.

Usually, prisoners in the Laramie County Detention Facility are given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you miss court, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Laramie County Detention Facility site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, its very simple to do. First, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman may use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster you can post bail, the sooner you will be released. Also, it might depend on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if a judge still needs to figure out your bail amount. For a minor offense, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a date of your release, expect to get released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, you really should follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go to the jail intake area, and tell them that think that there is a warrant for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late. Only bring things that are allowed with you, such as your drivers license or ID, prescription medication, and the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you must give information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will be entered into a log of approved visitors as an authorized visitor. Each visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone arriving late or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so we suggest that you check the official jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . These phone calls are typically more expensive than regular phone calls. There is no limit to how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you are disciplined for an infraction, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get cut back or cut altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Laramie County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get used to the routine that is set for you. You should expect an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will work in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. This could be working in the kitchen, laundry, or some sort of manufacturing job. While this may seem tedious, it may help you when you leave jail, as you are gaining experience in a certain field of work. Other inmates go to school, while some take part in mandated treatment programs. After lunch, there will be another roll call, then back to work. Your evening will be spent either in your cell or a common room. During this time dinner is served and you will be expected to take a shower. After another roll call, it’s lights out. Even though you will be confined to your cell, there may be enough light to read or write letters. Then again, most inmates welcome lights out, and try to get as much sleep as they can.

    Most people are frightened at the idea of jail because they don’t know what to expect. If you have spent any time in Laramie County Detention Facility, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Laramie County Detention Facility uniform. This is normally a jumpsuit or scrubs. Of note to anyone visiting an inmate – you must be properly dressed. Any clothing considered inappropriate will not be permitted.

    How To Send Money to an Inmate

    You will have your own ‘bank account’ while in jail. This money is used to purchase items from the Commissary. Family and friends can deposit money into this account for you, and any money you earn while in prison will also be deposited into your account. Outside money can be paid in to your account via a money order, cash or check. If someone sends a check or money order, make sure that they write your inmate ID on it. The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.

    The rules for sending funds to inmates at Laramie County Detention Facility might change, so you should review the official Laramie County Detention Facility site before you send money to an inmate there.

    Commissary

    The commissary is the jail store. You can purchase a number of things here, such as toiletries, snacks and writing supplies. Bear in mind that you will probably want to use the commissary daily, and any infractions will get that privilege taken away from you.

    Inmate Medications

    If you are on any type of prescription medication, you will be allowed to continue taking it while in jail. When you are first processed, you will be asked what medication you take. You will then be referred to the jail nurse or doctor who will be in charge of monitoring your health and prescribing your medication.

    Meals

    You will get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As expected, they are very basic, but healthy. A typical breakfast might be cereal, toast, coffee and fruit. Lunch might be spaghetti, salad, bread and milk. Dinner could be chicken casserole, rice, vegetables, dessert and milk. Contrary to popular belief, prison food has greatly improved over the years, and you might find that it’s not much different from what you would eat at home.

    Pods / The Yard

    The jail is designed in a ‘pod’ layout, with self contained housing arranged around an outdoor yard. Each pod has a central control station and a common room, and the inmates take turns in using the yard. The jail is designed this way to keep certain inmates together, and others away from the general population.

    Gangs

    As with life in general, gangs are a part of prison life. Obviously it is best to avoid becoming a part of this environment as it will only lead to trouble. When you first enter prison, you might find yourself being ‘primed’ to join a gang, or worse, you might get their attention in a negative way. The best thing to do is keep your head down and don’t get involved.
