Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about when you get out. After booking, bail is set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to show up for court, and until that date you must not leave the area.

In most cases, an inmate are given time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will either have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You will need to pay 10% of the amount that was determined before you can be released from jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever put up your bail money won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Randolph County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it’s very simple to do. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not accept checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. 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, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Randolph County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon get used to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm to wake up each morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Randolph 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 Randolph 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 funds to someone in jail at Randolph County Jail is always changing, so it would be best to visit the official Randolph County Jail site when you send funds to an inmate.

    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.
