Life can be hell inside a cell

Does the thought of spending a few nights in jail seem like something you can handle ? After all, how hard can it really be…

Have you ever thought about the living conditions and the level of treatment that our prison system really gets? Take a look at these top reasons why Jail is no place to spend the night, and why you will want to Bail Out As Quickly as Possible !

THE FOOD: If you have ever eaten "jail food," you know that it makes hospital food look like it came from a gourmet bistro.

THE HEADCOUNT: Officers at the jail/correctional facility have to take a count numerous times throughout the day.

THE LONELINESS: In jail, you will probably not be surrounded by your friends. You don't know anyone and yet you are locked up with these strangers for days or months. There is also limited time to utilize a free telephone. After being processed and fingerprinted, you will be moved to a regular housing area where the majority of the telephones only allow collect calls to be made. When you feel like you have been alone for days with no one to talk to, that is exactly what they want, and they don't care.

THE BOOKING PROCESS: Time passes slowly. The booking process (mug shot and fingerprinting) can vary. Then you will be moved from the intake area to a transitional housing area where everybody who has been arrested, who has not bonded Out will stay until they are moved to a correctional facility, until their next court date or they are bonded out.

THE PLUMBING: There is no privacy in Jail. You just have it get used to it. These conditions are as bad as it gets! (Even port-o-potties are better!)

THE CELL-MATES: No matter what charge you are brought into jail for, you could have a cellmate who has a long and violent criminal history – he could even be charged with murder. (At least you will have some stories to tell…if you get out first.)

THE MEDICAL CARE: If you are sick, it could take several days before you are seen by a medical professional. If you have a specific medical condition that requires attention, you may as well get used to the lack of care and attention, and hope to get out soon!

THE COURT DATE: If you are charged with a misdemeanor, it may be several weeks before you have a court appearance. If you are charged with a more serious felony, it could be months before you see a judge. If you don't Bond Out during that time, each and every day will be spent in confinement, following rules and possibly coexisting with people who have very serious crimes on their record. The wait can be the worst part.

THE CHANGE OF LIFESTYLE: Just being away from home is not the worst part. Being alone, the endless waiting, being misunderstood, and making strange "new friends" can be hard…you always have to watch your back!

Family/ Your Life : If you are bonded out, you have the ability to work, be with your family, and be able to hire an attorney to build a strong argument for your charges.
