Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must promise to be there for your court date, and until that date you can’t leave town.

In most cases, an inmate can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will either have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay depends on how serious your charges are. Someone will have to put up ten percent of the total that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose that 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 will have to call the jail. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, its really easy if you have the money. To start with, find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you won’t be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged takes from 30 minutes to all day. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get let go. Also, it will depend on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the judge still needs to decide on how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the date of your release, you should expect to be released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you must begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail, and let them know that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Only bring approved items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to provide information about each visitor to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will be entered into a log of approved visitors as an authorized visitor. Each and every visitor is required to provide proof of identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures change often, so we suggest that you check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Assumption Parish jail is no fun, in time you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm every morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Assumption Parish Detention Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Assumption Parish Detention Center 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 someone in jail at Assumption Parish Detention Center could change, so check the site before you send money to an inmate.

    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.
