Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this can 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 released from jail you will have to promise to go to your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to go out of town.

In most cases, an inmate at Phillips County Jail are given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your crime. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order for you to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose all of the 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 Phillips County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, its easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. They generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes have 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 has been set really high, the bail bondsman will request to use assets as collateral.

When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring required items with you, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Phillips County Jail is no fun, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Phillips 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 Phillips 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 someone in jail at Phillips County Jail can change, so you should visit the official website when you send any funds.

    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.
