Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, once you’re in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail is set by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you are released you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you will not be permitted to leave town.
Typically, a prisoner are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while locked up.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to go back to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could be allowed to move into a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the jail. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Bollinger County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.
If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will usually require that they use your personal assets as collateral.

Jail Policies and Procedures
Intake Procedures / Booking
The intake process takes you through each of these steps:
- You will be placed in a waiting area or cell. When the jail is busy, you may not be processed immediately.
- The first step is that you will answer a bunch of questions, such as your full name, home address, birthdate and a contact person.
- They’ll also ask you about your medical and mental history.
- You will be given an inmate ID number.
- You will be fingerprinted.
- They will take your mugshot.
- All of your personal property will be taken away from you and will be stored until you are released.

Have you ever been booked into jail? If so, please tell your story. How long did it take to get through intake? How were you treated? Can you tell us tips that might help other people make it through jail intake?
Speak Your Mind
When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes from 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster you post bail, the sooner you can get released from jail. Also, it depends on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge still needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the discharge date, you should expect to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
warrant out for your arrest, or if you have to start your sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. For a warrant, go to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if there is one, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you aren’t late. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed when you go, like a driver’s license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order from court.
Inmates need to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will go in the visitation log for the requesting inmate. Each visitor is required to provide identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visitation order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures can change, so make sure that you review the official site before you go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Calls made in jail are a lot more expensive than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, phone privileges might get cut back or forbidden.

Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the person on trial, their family, and, if applicable, the victim in the crime. Remember you are allowed to ask to see a copy of this report prior to sentencing, so you get the chance to correct any mistakes that it contains.
When you are convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, ranging from community service to probation, to incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on the severity of the crime, you might get immediately taken into custody, or given a date to go to jail to serve your jail time according to your sentence.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Bollinger County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get a wake-up alarm at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will have 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 Bollinger 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 Bollinger 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 jail inmates can change, so review the the Bollinger County Jail website before you send any funds.
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.
