Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are incarcerated, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail is set either through a preset bail schedule or a 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 released from jail you must promise to show up for court, and in the meantime you are required not to leave the area.

Typically, a prisoner are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished working, or you may get to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. You will have to put up ten percent of the total that was set so you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the Faulkner County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Faulkner County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, it is really easy. First, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Faulkner County jail is very scary, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. You should expect an alarm to wake up at about 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following breakfast participate in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Faulkner 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 Faulkner 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 rules for sending funds to people in jail could change, so you should review the official website when send funds to someone in jail 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.
