Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re in jail, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail will be set by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you are required not to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount depends on how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to post 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to get out of jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that paid your bail 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 need to call the Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ). If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ) site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you need to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman might use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ) is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon become accustomed to the daily routine there. You should expect an alarm to wake up at about 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat 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 Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ), 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 Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ) 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 procedure to send money to jail inmates could change, so visit the official 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.
