Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you are locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be decided by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may 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 of jail you will have to promise to go to your court date, and until that day you won’t be allowed to leave the area.
Typically, a prisoner are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and act right while incarcerated.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will have to stay the jail at the end of the day after work, or you might be permitted to move into a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total set in order for you to be released. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it is really easy. First of all, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman may ask to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Speak Your Mind
When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere between 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can post bail, the faster you can get out of jail. Also, it might depend on if you have a bond amount or if a judge needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the release date, you should expect to be 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 jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail intake area, and tell them that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, 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, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Make sure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring required items when you go, for example your driver’s license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.
To have visitors, you have to list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered in a Visiting log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors that gets to visitation or that does not have a visitation order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so it would be wise to review the official jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Love County Jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then have breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to 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 Love 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 Love 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 at Love County Jail is likely to change, so you should visit the site before 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.
