It is difficult to do this, and you will most likely need the services of a lawyer.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you’re in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After booking, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might 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 do bail out of jail you are required to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you must not leave the county.
Typically, an inmate in the Sabine Parish Jail are given time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while locked up.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may get to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Your bail is how much money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on how serious your charges are. Someone will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set so you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, that person 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 must call the Sabine Parish Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it is easy. First, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you can’t use a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail will not take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman might ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

For minor offenses, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a discharge date, expect to get released between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
If the police have a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you really should follow the law and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell someone that believe that there could be a warrant out for your arrest.

If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you are not late to report. Only bring approved items when you turn yourself in, like your drivers license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in the Sabine Parish jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00am, and then roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Sabine Parish 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 Sabine Parish 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 is likely to change, so it would be best to double check the official Sabine Parish Jail site before send funds to someone in jail 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.
