Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might 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 you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that date you must not leave the county.

Typically, an inmate will earn time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is determined by how serious your charges are. Someone will have to pay ten percent of the total that was set before you can be released from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the Marion County Detention / Dispatch. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Marion County Detention / Dispatch website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s easy. First, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. Cash only – they can’t take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in these cases ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

You can find a bail bondsman go to: Bail bondsman

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Marion County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. Prisoners get an alarm to wake up each morning at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will be required 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 Marion County Detention / Dispatch, 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 Marion County Detention / Dispatch 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 Marion County Detention / Dispatch inmates might change, so you should check the official website when you send funds 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.
