Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After booking, bail will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you can’t leave town.

Usually, inmates will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to jail at the end of the day after work, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is dictated by the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to put up 10% of the amount that was set so you can be released. If you don’t go to your court appearance, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the 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 must call the jail. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s very simple to do. First, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they won’t accept a check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Area jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required to 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 Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail, 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 Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail 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 Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail can change, so it would be best to double check the the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail website when you send funds 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.
