Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you are incarcerated, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to go out of town.
Typically, an inmate at Clarendon County Correctional Center can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to pay 10% of the amount set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you miss court, whoever paid 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 Clarendon County Correctional Center or the County Courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Clarendon County Correctional Center site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, its easy. First of all, figure out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will usually use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process may take from 15 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get released. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether or not you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate needs to determine how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a release date, plan to be discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think there may be a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed with you, like a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order.
The inmate must provide each visitor’s full name to the jail. Your visitor’s information will be entered into a log of approved visitors as an approved visitor.

Visitation procedures are always changing, so you should double-check the jail site before you visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
All phone calls from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Jail phone calls are generally more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but you should keep in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you break the jail rules, phone calls could be reduced or eliminated altogether.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Clarendon County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required 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 Clarendon County Correctional Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Clarendon County Correctional Center 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 money to someone in jail at Clarendon County Correctional Center could change, so we suggest that you check the the Clarendon County Correctional Center website when you send any money.
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.
