Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you do bail out you must promise to show up for court, and you must not leave the area.
Usually, a prisoner can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will have to stay jail every day after work, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of jail.
Bail is how much money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to post 10 percent of the total amount set so you can bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it’s really easy if you have the money. First, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. Cash only – they will not accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will request to use assets as collateral for the bond.

Jail Policies and Procedures
Intake Procedures / Booking
The jail intake procedure includes each of the following steps:
- You will be placed in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you may not be processed immediately.
- Firstly, you will answer some basic questions, such as your full legal name, address, birth date and contact person.
- They’ll also ask about your medical and psychological history.
- You will be given an inmate number.
- You will get fingerprinted.
- You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.
- All personal property will be taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
- You will then be allowed to make a telephone call in order to get in touch with a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.
- If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might get to wear your own clothes, otherwise you will be issued a jail issued jumpsuit.
Have you ever been arrested and gone through the jail intake procedure? If you have, please share your experience so others can benefit from your story. How long did you have to wait in the holding cell? How were you treated? Do you have any secrets that might help others get through the procedure?
Speak Your Mind
Once bail has been posted, you will get discharged from jail. This process will take between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the faster you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released will depend on whether or not you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge still needs to decide on the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a discharge date, expect to get released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
If the police have a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail, in the reception area, and tell the intake officer that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you are not late to report. Only bring things that are allowed with you, like a driver’s license or ID, prescription medication, as well as an official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will go into the visitation log as an Authorized visit. Each and every visitor is required to provide proof of identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will be turned away.
The Latimer County Jail visitation procedures frequently change, so we suggest that you check the official jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Phone calls made in jail are generally more expensive than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the jail rules, your ability to use the phone might get reduced or eliminated completely.

You should print the name, prisoner number, and the jail address on the outside of the letter that you send. Do not mail a package, padded envelope, bag, or an envelope containing metal parts.

Get A Lawyer
When you get arrested, you still have certain rights, one of these being that you have the right to request an attorney. You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so you would be wise to get a friend or family member to find an attorney when you call. You’re probably asking yourself ‘I don’t need a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you really want to, but, a criminal defense lawyer will make sure you know your rights, look after your best interests and help you find your way through the complicated court system in Latimer County. The sooner you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your criminal case, the better.

Also, the Public Defender is staffed by independent investigators, forensics experts as well as social case workers. You should be reassured that Public Defenders are licensed attorneys that are members of the Oklahoma State Bar and are completely licensed to practice law.

Information will be collected from the person on trial, their family, and if necessary the victim in the crime. Remember you are able to ask to receive your own copy of the report before your sentencing, so you get the chance to correct any inaccurate information.
When you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, ranging from community service to probation, to prison or jail time. Depending on the particulars of your trial, the severity of your crime, and any sentencing guidelines that they judge will use, you will either be taken into custody, right there in court, or given a date that you are required to turn yourself into jail to serve your jail time according to your sentence.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Latimer County Jail is no fun, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6am, and then roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Latimer 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 Latimer 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 funds to inmates at Latimer County Jail is always changing, so it would be best to review the site before you send funds to an inmate there.
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.
