Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are not allowed to go out of town.

In most cases, inmates at Delta County Detention Facility will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to return to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could be allowed 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 to get out of jail until your trial. Your bail amount all depends on how serious your charges are. Someone you know will need to put up ten percent of the total that was determined so you can get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will have to call the Delta County Detention Facility or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Delta County Detention Facility site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process takes between 15 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the quicker you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the judge still needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For lesser charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, you should follow the law and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they find one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Ensure that you are not late. Just bring necessary items when you turn yourself in, like a driver’s license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order.

Your visitors will go into a log of approved visitors for the inmate that requested the visitor. Each visitor must provide a photo ID when visiting.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Delta County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you. Expect a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, participate 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 Delta County Detention Facility, 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 Delta County Detention Facility 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 changes, so check the official Delta County Detention Facility site 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.
