Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are incarcerated, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, your bail amount will be set by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you are required to agree to show up for court, and until then you are required not to go out of town.

Typically, prisoners are given time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will be required to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you may be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total set in order for you to be released. If you miss your court date, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail 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 jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it’s very simple to do. To start with, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t accept a check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman may request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

You can find a local bail bondsman visit our page about: How to find a bail bondsman

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will get discharged from jail. The discharge process can take between 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the quicker you post bail, the quicker you can get out of jail. It also might depend on whether you have a cash bond or if the judge must figure out the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and know the release date, expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must start your 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 down to the jail processing area, and tell someone that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you are not late. Just bring approved items when you go to jail, such as a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put into a log of approved visitors as an Authorized visit. Each visitor has to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so you should check the official site before you go to the jail to visit.

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 . Phone calls made in jail are much pricier than phone calls made outside of jail. Phone calls are restricted on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but you should keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, your ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Phone Number: (501) 889-2333

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Perry County Detention Center is no fun, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6am, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Perry 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 Perry 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 rules for sending money to inmates is likely to change, so it would be best to double check the official website before 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.
