Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Once you are locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, a bail amount will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you do bail out you are required to promise to show up for court, and until that date you won’t be permitted to leave town.
In most cases, an inmate at Pinal County Adult Detention Center are given early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you may get to move into a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to post 10% of the amount that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for court, whoever paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
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. If you have all the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Pinal County Adult Detention Center site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, it is very simple to do. To start with, figure out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail won’t take checks. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged takes anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you have a cash bond or if the magistrate still needs to determine the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a discharge date, you should plan to be discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you have to start a jail sentence, you should follow the law and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell an officer that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be very careful that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go, like your drivers license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Each visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors arriving late or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Pinal County jail is no fun, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm every morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required to work in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Pinal County Adult Detention Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Pinal County Adult Detention Center 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 money to inmates can change, so it would be best to review the the Pinal County Adult Detention Center website before send money 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.
