Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
If you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about how to get out. After booking, your bail amount is determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is 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 are released from jail you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you can’t go out of town.
In most cases, an inmate at Chippewa County Jail will be given time off in exchange 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 might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to return to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might have the chance to live in a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by how serious your charges are. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set before you can bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever posted your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You will have to call the Chippewa County Jail. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Chippewa County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it’s really easy. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail can’t accept a check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

So, the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get released. Also, it will depend on if you have a cash bond amount or if the magistrate has to decide on how much your bail will be.

How To Turn Yourself In
issued for your arrest, or if you have to start your sentence, you should follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail processing area, and tell someone that you think they might have a warrant for your arrest.

If it is for a jail sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Make sure that you aren’t late. Only bring allowed items when you go, for example a driver’s license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will be put in a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Each and every visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors arriving late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.

If you break the rules, phone privileges may be limited or cut altogether.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Chippewa County jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect an alarm to wake up at six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. Following 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 Chippewa 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 Chippewa 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 procedure to send funds to jail inmates might change, so review the official Chippewa County Jail site before you send money to an inmate.
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.
