Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are locked up, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you must promise to go to your court date, and you won’t be allowed to leave the area.

Typically, inmates can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount depends on the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order for you to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you will have to call the Hickory County Ambulance. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Hickory County Ambulance website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it is really easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you can’t get a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the 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 require that they use your personal assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process takes anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get let go. It also will depend on if you’ve been given a bond amount or if the magistrate needs to figure out the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a discharge date, you should plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

issued for your arrest, or if you have to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail intake area, and tell an officer that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring required items with you, like your driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will be put into the log for the inmate. Each visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so make sure that you check the official Hickory County Ambulance jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

Even if you’ve been arrested, you still have rights, one of these is your right to request a lawyer.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Hickory County jail is no fun, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. After 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 Hickory County Ambulance, 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 Hickory County Ambulance 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 can change, so it would be best to review the official Hickory County Ambulance site before send money to someone in jail there.

    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.
