Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, once you are locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released you must agree to be in court on your court date, and until then you must not travel out of the county.
Usually, prisoners will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and act right while locked up.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move into a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to put up 10% of the amount that was set before you can get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money will not get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you must call the Osage County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should try a bail bondsman. They will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman might ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere from 30 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the faster you can post bail, the faster you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged depends on whether or not you have a cash bond amount or if a judge has to decide on the bail amount. For minor charges, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and have a discharge date, you should expect to be discharged that morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
In the event there is a, or if you need to start your sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell an officer that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, you will be taken into jail custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you are not late. Just bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, like your driver’s license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order from court.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to give information about each visitor to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s information will be put in a log of visitors for the requesting inmate. All visitors will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
The Osage County Jail visitation procedures frequently change, so we suggest that you double-check the official Osage County Jail jail site before you go to visitation.

If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, an inmate’s phone privileges could be reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Osage County jail is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00am, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish 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 Osage 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 Osage 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 funds to Osage County Jail inmates changes, so we suggest that you visit the official website before 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.
