Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you are required to promise to show up for court, and until then you won’t be allowed to go out of town.
Usually, a prisoner are given early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and act right while locked up.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move to a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on how serious your crime is. You will need to pay 10% of the amount that was set in order for you to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail have to call the jail. If you have all the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Sedgwick County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, it is really easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They will usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will use assets as collateral for the bond.

How To Turn Yourself In

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Sedgwick County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. Following 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 Sedgwick 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 Sedgwick 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 jail inmates could change, so you should check the official website when you send funds 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.

They get to know the inmates on a certain level, and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
