In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out of jail you must agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you can’t leave town.
In most cases, a prisoner in the Cheyenne County Jail are given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while incarcerated.

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 will be required to pay is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to put up 10% of the amount set so you are able to be released. If you don’t go to your court appearance, whoever paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, its easy. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail will not accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate 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.
If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will in most cases use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

When you pay your bail, you will get released from jail. This process will take between 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster bail is posted, the faster you will get released. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge has to determine your bail amount. For minor charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should plan to get discharged between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you have to start your sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and tell them that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a record check, and if you do, you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring approved items with you, like your drivers license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order from court.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to list each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered into the log as an authorized visitor. Each visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies frequently change, so we suggest that you check the official site before you try to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Phone calls made in jail are generally more expensive than phone calls made outside of jail. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on 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 reduced or forbidden completely.

You’re probably asking yourself ‘but do I really need an attorney’ You are not required to have an attorney for some criminal charges, a criminal defense attorney will advise you about your rights, help protect your best interests and show you the way through the complicated legal system in your county. The quicker you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your case, the better off you’ll be.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Cheyenne County jail is no fun, in time you will settle into the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. Following 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 Cheyenne County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Cheyenne 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 money to people in jail is likely to change, so review the site when you send any money.
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.
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.
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.
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.
