Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, once you’re incarcerated, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail 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 released you are required to agree to show up for court, and you can’t go out of town.
Usually, a prisoner in the Logan County Jail will earn time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while they are in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you might have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of jail.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. You will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set so you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will not get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the Logan County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will 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
Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, its easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t use a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.
If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should hire a bail bondsman. They generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman might require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail may take between 30 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get let go. It also will depend on if you’ve got a bond amount or if the judge must determine how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, 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 are given a release date, you should expect to be released in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
issued for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, you really should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail intake area, and tell the intake officer that you think there may be 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 verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Ensure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go, such as a driver’s license or ID, prescription medication, and the sentencing order from court.
To have visitors, you must list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be entered in a Visiting log for the requesting inmate. Each and every visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visitation order will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies change often, so we suggest that you double-check the official Logan County Jail jail site before you try to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Logan County jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect an alarm to wake up at about 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required to 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 Logan 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 Logan 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 Logan County Jail inmates is likely to change, so we suggest that you check the official Logan County Jail 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.
