Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re locked up, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, 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 until that day you won’t be permitted to leave the county.

In most cases, an inmate can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to stay the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount set so you are able to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, that person will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it’s very simple to do. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

For a minor charge, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a release date, expect to get released that morning.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in Logan County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to work 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 Logan 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 Logan 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 procedure to send money to someone in jail is always changing, so be sure to double check the site before you send money to an inmate 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.
