Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, if you’re locked up, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and until that date you can’t travel out of the county.
Usually, an inmate in the Floyd County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may be allowed to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the seriousness of your charges. Someone you know will need to post 10 percent of the total amount set in order to be released. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will need to call the jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Floyd County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, it’s really easy. First of all, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should try a bail bondsman. They will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will in these cases require that they use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere from 15 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you post bail, the faster you will get let go. It also depends on whether or not you have a bond amount or if the judge has to determine the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have completed your jail sentence and have a release date, you should plan to get discharged between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if you do, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you are not late. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates must list each visitor’s name to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be entered into the visitation log for the inmate.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of being incarcerated in Floyd County Jail is no fun, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. After 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 Floyd 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 Floyd 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 funds to inmates at Floyd County Jail changes, so it would be best to double check the official Floyd County Jail site before you send funds to an inmate.
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.
