Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
If you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount is set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released you will have to promise to go to your court date, and you won’t be permitted to leave the county.
Usually, a prisoner will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to jail each day when you’re finished working, or you might have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was determined in order for you to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to court, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Carbon County Jail. If you have all the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Carbon County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t take a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process can take between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get released. How quickly you get discharged depends on if you have a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the date of your release, plan to be discharged in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you must report to start a sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell them that you think there may be a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you go, such as a driver’s license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.
Inmates have to provide each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will be put in the visitors log as an approved visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies can change, so make sure that you double-check the official site before you go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are usually more expensive than phone calls made outside of jail. Phone calls are restricted on when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the jail rules, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get reduced or cut altogether.

Get A Lawyer
If you get arrested, you should know you still have rights, the first of which is the right to request a lawyer. You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so you would be wise to ask a friend or family member to find a lawyer for you. You may be asking yourself ‘I don’t have to get a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you really want to, but, a criminal lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your interests and help you navigate through the complicated legal system. The sooner you get a lawyer involved with your criminal case, the better.
For more information about this, read: How to Find a Lawyer

The Carbon County magistrate is the judge that will preside on your case. They do many different things, such as setting your bail amount, issuing arrest warrants, and overseeing preliminary court proceedings and detention proceedings.
A pre-sentencing report is prepared to include information about the defendant’s background and as much detail about the defendant’s life history, which the magistrate will review and take into account when determining your sentence. Information and personal details will be collected from the person on trial, his or her family, and in some circumstances the victim of the crime. Be sure to remember you can ask to see your own copy of this report prior to sentencing, and make sure that you go over it and correct any mistakes in it.
After you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, which include community service to probation, to incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on the severity of the crime, you will either be immediately taken into custody, or you could get a date to surrender and report to jail to serve your term.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of getting locked up in the Carbon County jail is very scary, soon you will settle into the daily routine. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00 AM, and then roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following 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 Carbon 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 Carbon 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 procedure to send funds to inmates at Carbon County Jail could change, so it would be best to check the the Carbon County Jail website before you send funds 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.

They get to know the inmates on a certain level and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
