Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re incarcerated, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you are required to agree to be there for your court date, and until then you can’t travel out of the county.

Typically, an inmate in the Uinta County Detention Center can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to stay jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set before you can get out of jail. If you don’t go to court, whoever posted your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Uinta County Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not take checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman might use assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail will take from 15 minutes to all day long. In other words the quicker you post bail, the quicker you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged can depend on if you have a cash bond or if a judge must determine the bail amount. For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a date of your release, expect to get released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to report to start a sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell an officer that you think there is a warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they find one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late to report. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, for example a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put into a log of approved visitors as an approved visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
The Uinta County Detention Center visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to double-check the official site before you visit an inmate.

Get A Lawyer

Or, you can just go down to the jail and ask the officer in charge. You should be clear that if there is an arrest warrant out for you, you will be taken into custody immediately.

All registered sex offenders have to be registered on either a national or state sex offender database. Those listed on these databases have been convicted in a court of law of a sex or kidnapping crime. You can access these offenders online, but remember that you will not see the street address, but only the neighborhood block that they live on.

Court Records

Court Records are public records. These records include a court case file that includes a docket sheet and all documents and filings filed in the court case. You can access your court records via the internet service ‘Public Access to Court Electronic Records’, or at Clerk of Court office in the county where the case was filed.

  • DUI.
  • Drug offenses.
  • Kidnapping.
  • Rape or other sexual assault.

  • Any accidents.
  • Other moving violations.
  • Parking Tickets.
  • To search for driving records, you must do a search for their driving record.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Unita County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get used to the daily routine. You will get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Uinta 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 Uinta 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 process for sending money to inmates at Uinta County Detention Center is always changing, so we suggest that you double check the the Uinta County Detention Center website when you send money to an inmate.

    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.
