Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Once you’re locked up, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount is determined by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until that day you must not travel out of the county.
Usually, a prisoner will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you may be allowed to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was determined before you can be released. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, that person will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You will need to call the Carbon County Jail. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is never fun, but usually, it is very simple to do. To start with, figure out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t take checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. They usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes have a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

How To Turn Yourself In
In the event there is a, or if you have to start your sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. For a warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and tell someone that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if so, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you are not late to report. Make sure that you only bring approved items with you, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Carbon County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6:00am, and then roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. After breakfast, participate 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 Carbon 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 Carbon 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 process for sending funds to inmates can change, so it would be best to visit the site when you send funds 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.
