Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, if you’re locked up, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out of jail you must agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you must not leave the county.
Usually, an inmate will earn time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to stay the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may be permitted to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to post ten percent of the total that was set in order for you to get out of jail. If you don’t show up for court, whoever posted your bail 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 pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can 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 no fun, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.
If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you should hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will usually require that they use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged can take anywhere between 10 minutes to many hours. So, the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you will get discharged. Also, it depends on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge has to determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the date of your release, expect to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you need to start your sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the law and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and tell the intake officer that you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, 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 when you turn yourself in, like your driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to give information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will be put into the log as an authorized visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visitation order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures at Okmulgee County Jail change often, so you should review the jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but bear in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you break the rules, an inmate’s phone privileges may be limited or cut altogether.

Get A Lawyer
Even if you’ve been arrested, you should know you still have rights, one of these being your right to request a lawyer. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so you would be wise to have a friend or family member locate an attorney when you talk to them. You’re probably asking yourself ‘I don’t have to get a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal attorney will make sure you know your rights, protect your interests and guide you through the criminal justice system. The faster you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your situation, the better your chances.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Okmulgee County jail is no fun, in time you will get used to the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up each morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have 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 Okmulgee 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 Okmulgee 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 money to Okmulgee County Jail inmates can change, so review the site before you send money 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.
