Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail will be determined by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might 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 must agree to be there for your court date, and until that date you must not go out of town.
In most cases, prisoners are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you could get to live in a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay depends on how serious your charges are. Someone you know will need to put up ten percent of the total that was set before you can be released. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose all of the 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 jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Beaver County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s really easy if you have the money. First, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum of $100. This money is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman may ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the faster you will get let go.

For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail.

How To Turn Yourself In

The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they find one, you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Just bring things that are allowed with you, such as your driver’s license or even state issued ID, prescription medication, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Beaver County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then eat breakfast. After breakfast, participate 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 Beaver 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 Beaver 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 inmates at Beaver County Jail could change, so it would be best to check the official website when you send any funds.
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.
