Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you are not allowed to leave the county.

Typically, prisoners in the Clark County Chief Of Police will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to return to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until your trial. Your bail amount depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, that person will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Clark County Chief Of Police. If you have all the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Clark County Chief Of Police site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but usually, its really easy. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes have a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get let go. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the judge still needs to decide on the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the release date, expect to be released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you must begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell the intake officer that think that there is a warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if you do, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order lists. Be sure that you aren’t late. Only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s information will be entered in a Visiting log as an approved visitor. Each and every visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so check the official jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Calls made in jail are much more costly than phone calls made at home. There are certain restrictions about when and how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules and are disciplined, your ability to use the phone might get cut back or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

Sentencing

If you get convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Clark County Chief Of Police is very scary, in time you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm to wake up at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will 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 Clark County Chief Of Police, 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 Clark County Chief Of Police 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 someone in jail at Clark County Chief Of Police is likely to change, so review the site when you send money 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.
