Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you’re in jail, your main thought is about how to get out. After booking, your bail amount will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you are released you are required to promise to show up for court, and you are required not to leave town.
Usually, an inmate are given time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will have to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.
Bail is money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. Your bail amount depends on how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set in order for you to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, whoever put up your bail money will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the Collier County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Collier County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s very simple to do. First, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will request to use assets as collateral.

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. This process will take anywhere from 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. It also can depend on whether you have a cash bond amount or if a magistrate has to determine how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a release date, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If you have a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and tell the intake officer that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Just bring approved items with you, for example your driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail. Your visitor’s names will be put in the visitors log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Every visitor is required to provide identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will be turned away.
The Collier County Jail visitation procedures change often, so double-check the jail site before you go to the jail to visit.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of getting locked up in the Collier County jail is very scary, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Expect an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Collier 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 Collier 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 jail inmates might change, so be sure to visit the site when you send any money.
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.

An inmate is unlikely to have much interaction with the Deputy Sheriff, unless they have committed an infraction. Detention Officers are responsible for the custody and care of the inmates. They maintain order in the jail, and handle security. A Detention Officer is assigned to a certain pod, and therefore is responsible for the same inmates each day. They get to know the inmates on a certain level and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
