Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, bail is set either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you are required to agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

Usually, prisoners in the Wyoming County Jail will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is dictated by how serious your charges are. You will need to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can be released. If you don’t show up for court, whoever put up your bail money won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail have to call the Wyoming County Jail. If you have all the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it is very simple to do. First of all, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets as collateral.

  • You will be issued an inmate number.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • They will take your mugshot.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get released from jail. The discharge process can take anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released depends on whether or not you have a cash bond amount or if a magistrate needs to determine how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a discharge date, plan to get released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Get A Lawyer

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Wyoming County jail is no fun, soon you will get used to the daily routine. All inmates get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required to work in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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 might change, so double check the site when send funds 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.
