Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, once you are in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount will be determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released from jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you can’t travel out of the county.
Typically, a prisoner in the Lincoln County Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will be required to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.
Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. You will have to post 10 percent of the total amount set so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, that person will lose that bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Lincoln County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it’s very simple to do. First, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will in these cases require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail can take from 10 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can post bail, the quicker you will be freed. Also, how fast you get released depends on whether you have a cash bond amount or if a magistrate needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a release date, you should expect to be released between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
If the police have a, or if you must report to start a sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell them that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if you do, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring approved items with you, like your driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order from court.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will be entered in the visitors log as an authorized visitor. All visitors will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies frequently change, so it would be wise to check the official site before you go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Jail phone calls are generally more expensive than phone calls made outside of jail. There is no limit to how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone privileges may be limited or forbidden.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Lincoln County Jail is very scary, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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 procedure to send money to inmates might change, so we suggest that you check the official Lincoln County Jail site when you send funds 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.
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.
