Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, if you are incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you do bail out you must promise to go to your court date, and until that date you are required not to go out of town.
In most cases, inmates are given time off in exchange for good behavior when 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 granted work release. You will be required to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you may have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until your trial. Your bail amount depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was determined in order for you to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First of all, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually have 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 is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will usually ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you will get discharged. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond or if a magistrate has to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For a minor charge, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and know the date of your release, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you need to start your sentence, you really should do the right thing and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell them that believe that there could be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if there is one, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Make sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Only bring necessary items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a official sentencing order.

You may be asking yourself ‘but do I really need a lawyer’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your best interests and show you the way through the legal system in your county. The quicker you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your situation, the better.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of spending time in Multi-County Correctional Center is quite unpleasant, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm each morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Multi-County Correctional Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Multi-County Correctional 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 is likely to change, so review the the Multi-County Correctional Center website when send funds to someone in jail there.
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.
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.
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.
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.
