Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re locked up, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must promise to show up for court, and in the meantime you must not leave the county.

Typically, prisoners will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the seriousness of your charges. Someone will have to pay ten percent of the total set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, that person 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 will have to call the Gasconade County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it’s easy. First, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they won’t take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged can take anywhere from 15 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you can get released from jail. Also, it depends on if you’ve been given a bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a release date, expect to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell the intake officer that believe that there could be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, 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 time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you are not late. Only bring things that are allowed with you, such as your driver’s license or even photo ID, prescription medication, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will be put in the visitors log as an approved visitor. Every visitor has to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures at Gasconade County Jail are always changing, so it would be wise to check the official site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Gasconade County Jail is very scary, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish 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 Gasconade County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Gasconade 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 funds to jail inmates could change, so you should check the site before you send funds to an inmate.

    Commissary

    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.

    Inmate Medications

    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.

    Meals

    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.

    Gangs

    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.
