Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, your bail amount is decided by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to go to your court date, and you are not allowed to travel out of the county.

Usually, inmates in the Clear Creek County Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to return to the jail every 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 court system to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on how serious your charges are. You or someone you know will have to pay ten percent of the total set so you are able to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, 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 person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount on the Clear Creek County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First of all, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman might use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Clear Creek County jail is no fun, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to work in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Clear Creek 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 Clear Creek 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 process for sending money to inmates at Clear Creek County Jail changes, so be sure to check the official website before send money 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.

  1. Georgetown is a small town. Corrections officers at clear creek would never make it in. Real city
    Could care less about inmates. It’s a 9-5 for them
    Medicines are not given when prescribed
    Medical issues are tend to 24 hrs later or more. No fresh air. Not allowed to go outside. Officers do not search prisoners or visitors coming in. A lot of contraband so contact visits are not allowed. Personal property is not cared for. Bottom line is the jail including captain and Sargent could give a shit about u being in there

Speak Your Mind
