Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are incarcerated, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released you must agree to be there for your court date, and until then you can’t leave town.

Usually, a prisoner in the Taliaferro County Jail will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to go back to jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by how serious your charges are. You will have to post 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, the person that paid your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you will need to call the Taliaferro County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Taliaferro County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you will not be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they can’t take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in these cases request to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail may take from 15 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you can post bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. It also depends on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge still needs to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and know the discharge date, plan to get released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the sheriff has a, or if you have to start a jail sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities.

They will do a record check, and if so, they will take you into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you go to jail, like your driver’s license or your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

You might be asking yourself ‘why do I need a lawyer?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal defense attorney will make sure you know your rights, help protect your best interests and help you through the criminal justice system in your county. The sooner you get a lawyer involved with your criminal case, the better.

Pre-Sentencing

A defendant’s pre-sentencing report is prepared with information about your background and as much detail about the defendant’s life history, which the magistrate judge will consider when determining your sentence.

Remember you are able to ask to see a copy of the report before sentencing, so you have the opportunity to review it and correct any mistakes.

Sentencing

When you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. There are a number of different options, which include community service and probation, to prison or jail time.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Taliaferro County Jail is very scary, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Taliaferro 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 Taliaferro 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 might change, so it would be best to double check the official Taliaferro County Jail site before send funds 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.
