Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might 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 are released from jail you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and until that day you are not allowed to travel out of the county.
In most cases, prisoners can earn time off in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to return to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set all depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount set in order for you to be released from jail. If you don’t go to your court date, that person will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You will have to call the Jasper County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Jasper County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, its easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman may use assets as collateral.

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged takes between 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get let go. It also can depend on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond or if the judge needs to figure out the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to be released that morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think there may be a warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you don’t show up late.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Jasper County Jail is no fun, you will soon get used to the daily routine there. You will get a wake-up alarm each morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish 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 Jasper 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 Jasper 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 procedure to send money to someone in jail at Jasper County Jail can change, so be sure to review the official website 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.
