Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

Usually, an inmate will earn time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day after work, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay depends on how serious your crime is. Someone will have to put up 10% of the amount set in order to be released. If you miss your court date, that person won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never fun, but usually, it’s easy. First of all, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will in these cases use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you should know you still have rights, the most important of which is the right to request a lawyer.

You may be asking yourself ‘do I really need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal attorney will advise you about your rights, help protect your interests and help you navigate through the complicated court system that you are now faced with. The sooner you get a lawyer involved with your case, the better.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the La Moure County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Lamoure 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 Lamoure 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 process for sending money to people in jail changes, so we suggest that you check the site before you send any money.

    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.
