Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Of course, if you’re in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail is determined by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are are released you are required to agree to go to your court date, and until then you are not allowed to travel out of the county.
Typically, an inmate at Pueblo County Jail can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.
If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to return to jail every day after work, or you could get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will have to put up 10 percent of the total that was set in order to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you have 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 what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Pueblo County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but thankfully, it is really easy. First, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t take a check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually have a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. So, the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get discharged. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if a magistrate must decide on the amount of bail to be set. For a minor offense, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should plan to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you must begin your jail sentence, you should follow the rules and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think they might have 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 so, you will be taken into jail custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Only bring required items when you go, like a driver’s license or ID, prescription medication, as well as a sentencing order from court.
The inmate need to provide information about each visitor to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s information will be entered in a Visiting log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Each visitor is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so make sure that you visit the jail site before you go to the jail to visit.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Jail phone calls are generally pricier than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on how often you can use the phone, but bear in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules and are disciplined, your ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated altogether.
Sending Mail to Inmates
Any mail that you send to an inmate has to be sent via the actual US Postal Service, and not courier or delivery, or hand delivered. You shouldn’t use any other type of delivery. You have to clearly write the person’s name, inmate ID, and the jail address on the letter that you send. Do not send anything in a package or box, envelope with padding, bag, or an envelope with any metal in it. Any mail gets opened and read by the jail administration, and will get sent back to the person who mailed it if they decide it is inappropriate.
Use this address when sending a letter to an inmate at Pueblo County Jail:
Pueblo County Jail
909 Court Street
Pueblo, CO 81003

[INMATE'S FULL NAME]
Pueblo County Jail

Get A Lawyer

You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is important to have a friend or family member locate an attorney for you. You may be asking yourself ‘why do I need a lawyer?’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, an attorney will advise you about your rights, look after your best interests and help you navigate through the court system in Pueblo County. The sooner you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your case, the better.

The magistrate acts as the judge who presides over your case in court. Magistrates do several different things, such as setting your bail amount, issuing arrest warrants, and acting as the presiding judge over preliminary court hearings and detention proceedings.
A pre-sentencing report is put together to include background information and as much detail about the defendant’s life history, which the magistrate will consider when determining the sentence. Information, details, and character witnesses will be solicited from the defendant, their family, and in some circumstances the victim of the crime.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Pueblo County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish 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 Pueblo 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 Pueblo 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 process for sending money to someone in jail at Pueblo County Jail is likely to change, so we suggest that you double check the official Pueblo 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.
