Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you’re locked up, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount is set by a special judge called a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you are released from jail you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are required not to travel out of the county.
In most cases, inmates at Lamb County Jail will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to return to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you might get to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to post 10% of the amount set so you can be released from jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever paid your bail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the Lamb County Jail. If you have all the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount on the Lamb County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but usually, it’s really easy. First of all, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not take a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

How To Turn Yourself In

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Lamb County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. After 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 Lamb 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 Lamb 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 money to people in jail could change, so it would be best to check the official Lamb County Jail site when 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.
