Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you do bail out of jail you must promise to show up for court, and until that day you must not leave the area.
Usually, prisoners will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect 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 might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay all depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will need to pay 10% of the amount set in order to be released. If you miss your scheduled court date, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Adair County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it’s really easy. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t use a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. They usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman may require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of spending time in Adair County Jail is very scary, you will soon become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Adair 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 Adair 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 rules for sending funds to inmates at Adair County Jail might change, so we suggest that you double check the site when 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.
