It is difficult to do this, and you will most likely need the services of a lawyer.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re in jail, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until then you will not be permitted to leave town.

In most cases, inmates will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is determined by how serious your charges are. You will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to be released. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the Teton County Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Teton County Detention Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it is simple to do if you have the money. To start with, figure out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in most cases request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the sooner you can get released from jail. It also can depend on if you have a bond amount or if a magistrate must determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a release date, you should expect to be released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you must report to start a sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and let them know that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they verify that you have one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Only bring necessary items when you go, for example a driver’s license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate need to list each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be put into a log of approved visitors as an Authorized visit. Each visitor will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone arriving late or without a visiting order will be turned away.
The Teton County Detention Center visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

Get A Lawyer

If you have been arrested, you have certain rights, and an important one is that you have the right to request a lawyer. Remember that you may be limited to the amount of phone calls you can make, so it is a good idea to get a friend or family member to locate an attorney when you call. I know you’re probably asking yourself right now ‘I don’t have to get a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal defense lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your interests and help you navigate through the criminal justice system in your county. The quicker you get a lawyer involved with your charges, the better.

Pre-Sentencing

A pre-sentencing report is put together to include information about the defendant’s background and details of the defendant’s life, which the magistrate judge will review and take into account when determining a sentence. Information will be solicited from the person on trial, his or her family, and, if applicable, the victim of the crime. Remember you are allowed to request to have your own copy of this report before sentencing, so you have the opportunity to correct the mistakes.

Sentencing

After being convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, ranging from community service and probation, to even incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on sentencing guidelines and the severity of your crime, you might get taken into custody, right there in court, or you could receive a date that you are required to turn yourself into jail to serve out your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in Teton County Detention Center is no fun, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm to wake up at six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Teton County Detention Center, 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 Teton County Detention Center 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 money to people in jail changes, so be sure to visit the the Teton County Detention Center website when send money to someone in jail 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.
