Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are locked up, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released you must agree to show up for court, and you won’t be permitted to leave town.

Typically, an inmate 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 follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You will need 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 show up for your court appearance, that person will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you must call the Crook County Detention Facility. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, it is really easy if you have the money. To start with, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually have a minimum of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will ask to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

  • They’ll also ask you about your medical and mental history.
  • You will be given an inmate ID.

  • They will take your mugshot.
  • Any property you have will be taken from you and stored until you get released from jail.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged can take between 15 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released can depend on if you have a bond amount or if the judge has to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, expect to get discharged that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell someone that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring required items when you turn yourself in, such as your driver’s license or even state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate have to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail. Your visitor’s names will be entered in a Visiting log as an approved visitor. All visitors have to provide proof of identification. Visitors arriving late or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at Crook County Detention Facility frequently change, so double-check the jail site before you try to go to visitation.

If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, an inmate’s ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Crook County Detention Facility is no fun, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm to wake up at 6:00am, and then roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will have 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 Crook County Detention 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 Crook County Detention 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 money to inmates at Crook County Detention Facility might change, so be sure to visit the site 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.
