Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you must not leave the area.

Usually, a prisoner at Warren County Jail will be given time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will have to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you may be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was set before you can be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you need to call the Warren County Jail. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount on the Warren County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

  • They’ll also ask you about your medical and psychological history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate number.
  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • All personal property will be taken away from you and stored until you are released.
  • They will let you use the phone to call a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might be able to skip the jumpsuit and keep wearing your own clothes, otherwise you will be given a jumpsuit.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be discharged from jail. This process will take between 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can post bail, the sooner you will be released. Also, it will depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond or if the judge still needs to determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the discharge date, you should plan to be released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must start your sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail intake area, and tell an officer that believe that there could be a warrant out for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into jail custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you are not late. Just bring necessary items when you go to jail, like your driver’s license or even ID, prescription medication, and the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate have to give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will go into a log of approved visitors for the inmate. Every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that gets to visitation or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so it would be wise to review the official site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

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 . Phone calls made in jail are a lot 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 must keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you break the rules and are disciplined, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get reduced or eliminated altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Warren County Jail is very scary, soon you will get used to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00 AM, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will have to work 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 Warren 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 Warren 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 you should visit the site before 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.
