Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to show up for court, and until then you are not permitted to leave the area.

Usually, a prisoner can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and act right while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.


Bail is money that you have to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to put up ten percent of the total that was set so you are able to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the St Charles County Corrections or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the St Charles County Corrections site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s really easy. To start with, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not take a check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in these cases use assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get released from jail. This process takes anywhere between 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster bail is posted, the quicker you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released can depend on if you’ve been given a bond amount or if the magistrate needs to decide on how much to set your bail at. For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the release date, you should plan to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must begin your jail sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail, and tell the intake officer that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they find one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring required items with you, such as your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of the visit. This information will be put into a log of visitors for the inmate. All visitors is required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at St Charles County Corrections can change, so it would be wise to review the official site before you go.

If you get arrested, you still have certain rights, and an important one is that you have the right to request a lawyer. You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is a good idea to have a friend or relative locate an attorney for you. You may be thinking ‘do I really need a lawyer?’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal defense lawyer will advise you about your rights, help protect your best interests and help you navigate the court system in your county. The sooner you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better your chances.

To read more about this, read: Find a Lawyer

Have you or someone you know used a Public Defender? Do you think that they did a good job of defending you?

Court costs and court fees are the fees and charges from your court case, which include filing fees, motion fees and various court charges. If you can’t afford to pay these fees and have been assigned a Public Defender, you will not be responsible for these fees.


The St Charles County magistrate is the type of judge that will preside over your case. Magistrate judges do different tasks, which include deciding a bail amount, issuing warrants, and overseeing preliminary and procedural court proceedings and detention hearings.


A pre-sentencing report is put together to include information about the arrestee’s background and details of the arrestee’s life and public history, which the judge will review and take into consideration when determining your sentence. Information and personal details will be requested from the defendant, the defendant’s family, and in some circumstances the victim in the crime. Don’t forget you are able to request to receive your own copy of this report before sentencing, so you get the chance to review it for accuracy and completeness, and correct any mistakes.


After you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, ranging from community service to probation, to even incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on sentencing guidelines and the severity of your crime, you may be locked up immediately, or you could be given a date that you are supposed to go to jail to serve your jail time according to your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the St Charles County jail is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about 6:00 AM, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will 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 St Charles County Corrections, 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 St Charles County Corrections 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 be sure to review the official website before you send money 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.

    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.


    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.

    I know someone who was in St. Charles County jail in 2012 an they didnt get a change of clothing for 23 plus days and only a drink of water for breakfast twice in 23 plus days. General population was deplorable. There were inmates sticking metal shards into electricity outlets or light sockets to light cigarettes and one inmate had a knife and showing it around just to brag about it. It makes you very afraid for your family who is in there. My family member was reassured that when he goes to prison it will not be like that. Everyone says this is one of the dirtiest, has the worst food and treats the inmates the worst in Missouri. My family member lost in excess of 10 pounds in less than a month and was not obese to begin with. Wearing the same undergarments for a month breeds bacteria and infection. What is wrong with this place, these are people not animals, some are in for traffic violations and child support, not murder.

  2. Karla S says:

    My brother has been in there for several months, at the begening he told us he was doing ok. My mom deposit him the money she could every week, but a couple of weeks ago he got moved to another block and now he is not doing ok, he is asking my mom to send him money more frequent and he ask for a big sum of money we always ask him what is wrong or whats happening but he always tell us he can not talk of that on the phone, obviously some one is threatening and he is in risk in there. I dont know what to do o where to go to get help if some one could help me and tell me what to do PLEASE!
