Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you are are released you must promise to be there for your court date, and until then you are not allowed to go out of town.
In most cases, a prisoner are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.
Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can be released. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, that person will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Broomfield Detention Facility or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, its very simple to do. First of all, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate 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 the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman might use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

For a minor charge, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a discharge date, you should expect to be discharged in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
In the event there is a, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail intake center, and let them know that think that there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if there is one, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late. Just bring required items when you go to jail, such as a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will go in a Visiting log as an Authorized visit. Each visitor must provide acceptable photo identification. Visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to visit the inmate.

There are certain restrictions about when and how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, phone calls may be limited or forbidden completely.
Sending Mail to Inmates
All inmate mail must be sent via US Postal Service. You shouldn’t use any other form of delivery. You have to write the inmate’s name, inmate ID, and the jail address on the outside of the letter that you send.

Get A Lawyer
Even if you’ve been arrested, you should know you still have rights, the most important of which is the right to request an attorney.

You’re probably asking yourself ‘why do I need a lawyer?’ You are not required to have an attorney for some criminal charges, an attorney will advise you about your rights, protect your interests and help you through the complicated legal system. The quicker you get a lawyer involved with your criminal case, the better your chances.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Broomfield County jail is very scary, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6:00 AM, and then roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following 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 Broomfield Detention Facility, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Broomfield Detention Facility 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 process for sending money to jail inmates changes, so be sure to double check the official website before you send money to an inmate 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.
