Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Once you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may 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 you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you will not be permitted to go out of town.
Usually, inmates at Marshall County Jail are given time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will be required to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to move to a halfway house instead of jail.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set in order to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You must call the Marshall County Jail. If you have all the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. First of all, you need to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of getting locked up in the Marshall County jail is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at six in the morning, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. When you finish 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 Marshall 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 Marshall 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 inmates at Marshall County Jail is always changing, so we suggest that you 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.
