Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

Usually, inmates in the King And Queen County Jail will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail every day after work, or you might be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was set in order to be released. If you miss your court appearance, that person will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the King And Queen County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it is simple to do if you have the money. To start with, find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they won’t take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman may require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in King And Queen County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will settle into the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 King And Queen County Jail, 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 King And Queen 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 process for sending money to jail inmates might change, so review the official website when you send money to an inmate 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.
