Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is decided by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you must agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to leave the area.

In most cases, a prisoner at Coconino County Jail District & Detention Facility will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day after work, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay 10% of the amount that was determined so you can get out of jail. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose that 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 will need to call the Coconino County Jail District & Detention Facility or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the Coconino County Jail District & Detention Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, it is really easy. First of all, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you can’t use a bondsman. Cash only – they will not take checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, 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 usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum charge 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 might use your personal assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process may take anywhere between 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you post bail, the quicker you will be freed. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to figure out your bail amount. For a minor offense, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a date of your release, expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell them that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if you do, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order states. Be sure that you are not late to report. Only bring things that are allowed when you go, such as a driver’s license or state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be entered in a log of approved visitors as an authorized visitor. Each visitor will be required to provide proof of identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies change often, so you should double-check the official site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Coconino County Jail District & Detention Facility is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then eat breakfast. After 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 Coconino County Jail District & Detention 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 Coconino County Jail District & Detention 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 money to someone in jail could change, so we suggest that you check the the Coconino County Jail District & Detention Facility website before you send funds 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.
