Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, your bail will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail 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 do bail out you must promise to go to your court date, and you won’t be allowed to leave the county.
In most cases, inmates at Warren County Jail can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.
If you follow the rules, 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 working, or you might have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount is determined by how serious your crime is. You will need to post 10 percent of the total amount set so you can get out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, that person won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You have to call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but usually, its really easy. First of all, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to get a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not take a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum of $100. This will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman might use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged takes anywhere between 30 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail.

For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, plan to be released in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If you have a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell someone that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they find one, you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Warren County Jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. Inmates get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00 AM, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Warren 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 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 funds to Warren County Jail inmates is always changing, so be sure to check the official Warren County Jail site before send money to someone in jail there.
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.
