Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until then you must not leave town.

In most cases, inmates will be given early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to stay the jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.


Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the seriousness of your crime. Someone you know will need to pay 10 percent of the total set so you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you need to call the Trumbull County Adult Justice Center or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Trumbull County Adult Justice Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its really easy. First, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will request to use assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take anywhere between 10 minutes to all day. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the quicker you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on if you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For a minor offense, 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, you should plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a record check, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Make sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring approved items when you turn yourself in, for example a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to provide the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them.

Life In Jail / What Its Like

Daily Life

Everyone knows that spending time in Trumbull County Adult Justice Center is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Expect an alarm to wake up every morning at 6am, and then roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required 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 Trumbull County Adult Justice Center, 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 Trumbull County Adult Justice Center 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 inmates at Trumbull County Adult Justice Center is always changing, so be sure to double check the official website before you send money 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.

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.


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.
