Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are in jail, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is set by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that day you won’t be allowed to go out of town.

Usually, prisoners at Rockingham County Department Of Corrections will be given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total set in order for you to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail 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 or the county courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Rockingham County Department Of Corrections site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, it’s very simple to do. First of all, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t take checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. This will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will request to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process will take anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the faster you can post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. It also depends on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if the judge must determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a release date, expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

issued for your arrest, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you should follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail reception area, and let them know that you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if so, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late to report. Just bring approved items when you go, such as a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will be put in the log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor is required to provide proof of identification. Anyone showing up late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so check the jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

All phone calls from jail are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Phone calls made in jail are a lot more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. Phone calls are restricted on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules and are disciplined, your ability to use the phone might get reduced or eliminated completely.

Phone Number:

Sending Mail to Inmates

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

When you’ve been arrested, you need to be aware that you still have rights, one of these is that you have the right to request a lawyer. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so you would be wise to ask a friend or family member to find a lawyer when you call. I know you’re probably asking yourself right now ‘I don’t need a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal attorney will advise you about your rights, help protect your interests and help you understand the court system in your county. The faster you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better.

To read more about how to find an attorney, read: How to Find an Attorney

Public Defender

If you’ve been arrested and don’t have the money to hire a lawyer, the courts will assign you a public defender, which is a free lawyer. In addition, the Public Defender’s Office has a number of staff such as private investigators, forensics experts as well as social workers. Public Defenders are full-fledged attorneys, admitted to the New Hampshire State Bar Association and are completely licensed to practice law in New Hampshire.

Have you or someone you know had to use a court appointed attorney or Public Defender? Are you happy with how they handled your case?

Court Records

Court records are a matter of public record. Court records have a court case file with a docket and all of the documents in your case. You have the ability to access your court records with the internet service, or at the Clerk of Court’s office.

Clerk of Court

The Rockingham County Clerk of Court is a member of the court that maintains the records. They also administer the oath for all court participants, and read the verdict when the jury makes their final decision. All records and documents associated with your court case are held at Clerk of Court.

Fees

Court fees are all costs associated with your case, such as for example filing charges, motion and claim fees, and court appearance fees. If you cannot afford these fees and have a Public Defender, you may not have to pay them.

Magistrate

The Rockingham County court magistrate is the judge that rules on your court case. Magistrate judges do several different things, like setting your bail amount, issuing warrants for arrest, and presiding over preliminary court proceedings and detention hearings.

Pre-Sentencing

A pre-sentencing report is prepared with information about your background and details of the defendant’s life, which the magistrate will take into consideration when determining a sentence. Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the defendant, the defendant’s family, and, if applicable, the victim. Keep in mind that you should ask to have a copy of your pre-sentencing report before you are sentenced, so you get the chance to correct the mistakes.

Sentencing

If you get convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, which include community service to probation, to incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on how serious your crime was, you could be taken into custody immediately, or you could receive a date that you must go to jail to serve your jail term according to your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Rockingham County jail is no fun, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about 6am, and then roll call. After roll call you will have 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 Rockingham County Department Of 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 Rockingham County Department Of 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 rules for sending funds to jail inmates might change, so be sure to visit the official Rockingham County Department Of Corrections site before you send any funds.

    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.
