Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After booking, bail will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you must promise to go to your court date, and until then you are required not to travel out of the county.
Typically, an inmate in the Taylor County Jail are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems 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. Either you will have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail.
Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to put up 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to be released from jail. If you miss court, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Taylor County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it’s easy if you have the money. First, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process can take anywhere between 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. So, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will be freed. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if a judge must figure out how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the release date, you should expect to get released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail intake center, and tell an officer that think that there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed with you, for example a driver’s license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitors will go in the log for the requesting inmate. Each visitor will have to provide identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies can change, so you should double-check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Taylor County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following 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 Taylor 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 Taylor 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 funds to Taylor County Jail inmates changes, so it would be best to visit the official website when you send money to an inmate.
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.
