Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you are in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail will be 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 released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released you will have to promise to be in court on your court date, and until then you are required not to go out of town.

In most cases, prisoners at Morrow County Correctional Facility will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break 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 given work release detail. You will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. Someone will have to put up ten percent of the total that was determined in order to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail 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 Morrow County Correctional Facility or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Morrow County Correctional Facility site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum of $100. This money will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman may use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged takes anywhere from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you can get released from jail. Also, it might depend on if you’ve got a cash bond or if a judge has to figure out the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a date of your release, expect to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and tell them that believe that there could be a warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into jail custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring approved items when you go, like your driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order from court.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Morrow County Correctional Facility is quite unpleasant, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine. You should expect an alarm for wake-up every morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Morrow County Correctional Facility, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Morrow County Correctional Facility 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 funds to someone in jail could change, so it would be best to review the the Morrow County Correctional Facility website before send money to someone in jail there.

    Commissary

    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.

    Inmate Medications

    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.

    Meals

    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.

    Gangs

    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.
