How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is never fun, but usually, it is simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t take a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10-15% of total bail, 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 bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in most cases use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Atchison County Jail is very scary, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required 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 Atchison 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 Atchison 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 inmates at Atchison County Jail changes, so be sure to visit the the Atchison County Jail website before 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.
