Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to be there for your court date, and you won’t be permitted to travel out of the county.

Typically, an inmate can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to stay the jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be allowed to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount set so you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, that person won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will have to call the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC) or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC) site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, it is really easy. First, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. They generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail may take from 15 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether you have a bond amount or if the judge 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. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. For a warrant, report to the jail intake center, and tell them that believe that there could be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. 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. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Ensure that you aren’t late. Only bring approved items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must provide each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitors will be entered into a log of visitors for the requesting inmate. Each and every visitor is required to provide proof of identification. Anyone arriving late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.
The Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC) visitation procedures are always changing, so we suggest that you visit the jail site before you go.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are a lot more costly than phone calls made outside of jail.

If you are disciplined for an infraction, phone calls might get cut back or forbidden.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in the Southwest Multi-County Regional Area jail is no fun, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Expect an alarm to wake up every morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will have breakfast. Following breakfast participate 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 Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC), your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC) 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.

    Commissary

    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.
