Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may 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 promise to go to your court date, and until that date you must not go out of town.

In most cases, inmates at Navajo County Detention Center will be given time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. Either you will have to stay the jail every day after work, or you may be permitted to move to 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 are required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on how serious your charges are. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the Navajo County Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Navajo County Detention Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t get a bail bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and usually charge a minimum of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in most cases request to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

You can find a local bail bondsman visit our page about: Find a bail bondsman at Navajo County Detention Center

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail will take between 10 minutes to many hours. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will be released. Also, it might depend on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to determine the bail amount. For minor charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a release date, you should plan to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must begin your jail sentence, you should follow the law and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell someone that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into jail custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Just bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, like your drivers license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitors will be entered into a log of visitors as an approved visitor. Every visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at Navajo County Detention Center are always changing, so we suggest that you double-check the official jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are a lot pricier than phone calls made at home. There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the jail rules, your ability to use the phone might get cut back or cut altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in Navajo County Detention Center is no fun, soon you will get used to the daily routine. Expect a wake-up alarm at 6:00 AM, and then roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish 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 Navajo County Detention Center, 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 Navajo County Detention Center 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 Navajo County Detention Center inmates is likely to change, so you should check the official 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.
