Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail will be decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you are required to promise to show up for court, and you can’t leave the area.

In most cases, an inmate at Greenlee County Jail are given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to jail at the end of the day after work, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to put up ten percent of the total set before you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose that 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 Greenlee County Jail. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it is easy. First of all, you have to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in these cases ask to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail may take anywhere from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the faster you post bail, the quicker you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether you have a cash bond amount or if the judge has to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a release date, you should expect to be released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you need to start your sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail processing area, 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 find one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Only bring things that are allowed when you go, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will go into the visitors log for the requesting inmate. Every visitor will have to provide identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so we suggest that you check the official Greenlee County Jail jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Phone calls made in jail are a lot more expensive than regular phone calls.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in Greenlee County Jail is no fun, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you in jail. Expect an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Greenlee County Jail, 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 Greenlee County Jail 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 inmates can change, so you should review the official website when you send any money.

    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.
