Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this may 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 you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until that date you won’t be allowed to leave town.
In most cases, a prisoner in the Prince George Corrections Department can earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the seriousness of your crime. You will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but usually, it’s really easy. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you will not be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman may ask to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Prince George’s County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish 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 Prince George Corrections Department, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Prince George Corrections Department 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 Prince George Corrections Department inmates might change, so visit the site before you send money to an inmate there.
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.
