Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re locked up, your main thought is about getting out. After booking, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out you must promise to show up for court, and until then you can’t travel out of the county.

Usually, a prisoner in the Bibb County Correctional Facility can earn time off in exchange for good behavior if 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 allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you could be permitted to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will need to put up ten percent of the total that was set in order to get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, that person will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You have to call the Bibb County Correctional Facility or the County Courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Bibb County Correctional Facility site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. First of all, you have to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually charge a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Bibb County Correctional Facility is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Bibb County Correctional Facility, 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 Bibb County Correctional Facility 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 might change, so review the official website before 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.
