Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about when you get out. After booking, your bail amount is set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to promise to show up for court, and until that day you are required not to leave the county.

Usually, inmates at Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished working, or you may be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total set so you are able to be released. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, that person will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will have to call the Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but usually, it’s really easy. First, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged may take from 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the faster bail is posted, the faster you can get out of jail. Also, it might depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if the judge still needs to determine how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a release date, expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail intake area, and tell them that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if you do, they will take you into 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. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring necessary items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or even your ID, prescription medication, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s names will go in a Visiting log as an approved visitor. Each visitor will have to provide proof of identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures change often, so double-check the official jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you in jail. Expect an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate 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 Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio, 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 Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio 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 funds to inmates at Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio could change, so you should review the the Corrections Center Of Northwest Ohio website when send funds 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.
