Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, your bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you must not go out of town.
Typically, prisoners in the Delta County Correctional Facility are given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to stay the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you might be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.
Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by how serious your charges are. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was determined before you can be released from jail. If you miss court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Delta County Correctional Facility site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you need to know if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman might use assets as collateral.

- The first step is that you will have to answer some questions, like what is your full legal name, your address, birthdate and a contact person.
- You will also be asked about your psychological and medical history.
- You will be given an inmate number.
- Your fingerprints will be taken.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere from 10 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. It also can depend on whether you have a bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the date of your release, expect to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and tell someone that believe that there could be a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that you have one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or even photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order.

Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the person on trial, their family, and in some circumstances the victim of the crime. Bear in mind that you can request to have your own copy of this report before sentencing, so you get the chance to correct the mistakes.
If you get convicted of a crime during your trial, you will be sentenced. There are a number of different options, ranging from community service to probation, to incarceration in jail or prison.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Delta County Correctional Facility is no fun, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will have 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 Delta County Correctional Facility, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Delta County Correctional Facility 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 jail inmates is always changing, so be sure to check the the Delta County Correctional Facility website when 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.
