Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are incarcerated, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may 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 must agree to go to your court date, and until that day you must not leave town.

Usually, an inmate at Washakie County Jail can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. You will need to pay 10% of the amount that was determined so you can bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for 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 need to call the jail. If you’ve got the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, its easy. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t take a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. They generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail may take anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. So, the faster you post bail, the quicker you will be freed. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond or if the magistrate needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a date of your release, expect to get released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

issued for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and tell them that you think there is a warrant for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they find one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you are not late to report. Only bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, like a driver’s license or even your ID, prescription medication, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to list each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered in a log of approved visitors as an authorized visitor. Each visitor must provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
The Washakie County Jail visitation procedures are always changing, so we suggest that you double-check the official jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Washakie County jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6am, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, participate in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Washakie 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 Washakie 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 money to people in jail is likely to change, so be sure to check the site before you send money to an inmate.

    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.
