Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, a bail amount is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and you can’t leave the county.

In most cases, an inmate in the Bullock Correctional Facility 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 granted work release. Either you will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be allowed to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. You will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the Bullock Correctional Facility or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like 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 Bullock Correctional Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, its really easy. To start with, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually charge a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Bullock County jail is very scary, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. Expect a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Bullock 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 Bullock 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 rules for sending funds to jail inmates can change, so we suggest that you visit the the Bullock Correctional Facility website before you send money 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.
