Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you’re locked up, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to go to your court date, and in the meantime you are not allowed to travel out of the county.

In most cases, prisoners are given early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to stay jail at the end of the day after work, or you might be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. Your bail amount is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set in order to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the jail. If you have all the person’s information, 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 on the Peumansend Creek Regional Jail (PCRJ) website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t get a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes charge a minimum of $100. This is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use assets as collateral.

You will get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. After breakfast, participate 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 Peumansend Creek Regional Jail (PCRJ), your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    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 rules for sending funds to people in jail changes, so we suggest that you double check the official website when you send funds 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.
