Visitors are not allowed to bring an offender anything nor is an offender allowed to give a visitor anything, unless it is approved by the Warden prior to the visit. Such items will be confiscated and destroyed and the offender may be subject to disciplinary action.

Smoking and tobacco products are strictly prohibited. Special visits are considered on a limited case by case basis. These visits are approved by the Warden only.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the deposit of money you give to the court to secure your release from jail while you await trial. The court holds the money to ensure that you follow through on all your court obligations. The money is handed back to you (minus court fees and fines) once the trial ends. If you miss a court appearance, the money is forfeited.

If you cannot afford to pay the bail on your own, you can secure the assistance of a bondsman. His fee is 12% of the bail amount and is non-refundable. In return, he will sign a bond securing your release and will be held responsible for paying the entire amount if you violate the conditions of your release.
