Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you are incarcerated, your only thought is about getting out. After booking, bail will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you are released you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and until then you are not permitted to leave the area.
Usually, prisoners at Frontier County Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail each day after work, or you might get to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set before you can bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for court, that person will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Frontier County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, its easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t use the services of a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and usually charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use assets as collateral.

When you pay your bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. The discharge process may take between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if a magistrate has to decide on your bail amount. For minor charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the date of your release, you should expect to get released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
In the event there is a, or if you must begin your jail sentence, you should follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell an officer that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if they find one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Make sure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go to jail, like your driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a copy of the sentencing order.
To have visitors, you have to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitors will be entered in the visitors log as an Authorized visit. Each and every visitor will be required to provide proof of identification. Any visitors showing up late or without a visiting order will be turned away.
The Frontier County Jail visitation procedures frequently change, so visit the jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that spending time in the Frontier County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon become accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Frontier 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 Frontier 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 someone in jail changes, so it would be best to check the official website when you send funds to an inmate.
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.
