What Is A Cash Only Bond?

Cash Only Bonds – an article to help explain the difference.

A cash only “bail” means it can’t be bonded. In other words, the Judge has required you to pay the full amount of the bail directly to the court rather than paying only a fraction of that to a bondsman.

Let’s say the judge sets your bail at $1,000 bond-able. In theory, you can run to a bail bondsman and only pay around 10% of that (which is $100) and the bondsman will sign a contract with the jail saying they will make sure the defendant appears or they will pay the remaining balance. This works most of the time.

What does cash-only bail mean?

Now let’s say the judge sets your bail at $1,000 Cash Only. It means the judge does not want you going to a bail bondsman. And doesn’t want the bondsman to sign a contract for this one. They want you to pay the total amount up-front to the court. Usually, this is an effort to make it more difficult for someone to be bailed out.

How Many People Are Locked Up in The U.S.?

The Prison Policy Initiative created an in-depth article on mass incarceration statistics for the United States.

In it, they show some incredible statistics. The report says the American criminal justice system holds more than 2.3 million people in 1,719 different state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 942 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,283 local jails, and 79 Indian Country jails. (1)

A picture of an American flag inside a chain-linked fence - How many people are locked up in the U.S.?

With all these prisons, jails and inmates, the report goes further to explain why the inmates are locked up. Check out their pie chart to see the numbers of different crimes committed for state, local, and federal prisons. For example, the biggest criminal activity from state prisons was robbery declared for 185,000 inmates, while murder and assault have numbers of 169,000 and 135,00 respectively for state prisons.

The pie chart shows a comprehensive overview of the system, but doesn’t accommodate the amount of people in and out of the correctional facilities. While most of them haven’t been convicted (some just being arrested and later making bail), others are too poor to make bail and have to remain until their trial. Only a small number of inmates (195,000) have actually been convicted.

Other interesting facts show that 1 in 5 inmates are locked up for a drug offense, and most youth behind bars are locked up for nonviolent offenses.

3. Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau
Though having only spent one night in prison after refusing to pay the poll tax to a government whose values he disagreed with, this is where Thoreau was inspired to write his classic essay on civil disobedience. He wrote, “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.”

4. Letters from Birmingham Jail by Martin Luther King Jr.

When Mailer was impressed with Abbott’s writing talent, he helped him get parole in 1981, the same year he was able to get his book published.

The Shortest Prison Sentence Ever Given

While a prison sentence can range from a couple of days to a number of years, you might wonder what the shortest prison sentence ever was given is. After researching for a bit, we came across an article which may indeed involve the lightest prison sentence ever.

An image of a clock - The one minute prison sentence.

Washington State: On August 13, 1905, Joe Munch, a soldier on leave of absence, decided to get drunk. After being found by a police officer and taken to the police station, Judge Gordon sentenced him to thirty days for being drunk and disorderly, but Munch’s case was taken to the higher court.

The new judge, Judge Frater, decided that while the soldier’s crime was not enough to merit punishment, he ought to be sent to jail for the looks of things, and have a lesson taught him. Consequently, Munch was sentenced to an imprisonment of one minute, a sentence so surprising to Munch that after the second-hand completed the circle of 60 seconds, he decided the best thing for him to do is to get away for fear of a heavier penalty.

He didn’t enjoy his freedom for too long, however. About a year later, after leaving Fort Lawton, he was onboard the transport ship Buford and was shot by a sergeant in self-defense when Munch became unruly and assaulted him. Maybe he should have been incarcerated for a few minutes more.

What is Prison Food Like?

The Marshall Project created an in-depth article on the topic of prison food. In it, they show some of the common meals provided in different prisons, with labeled images showing the parts of the meal.

Surprisingly, while the American Correctional Association recommends 3 meals a day, it doesn’t mandate it, and prisons exist where they provide only 2 meals a day, typically breakfast and dinner. Another complaint from prison facilities is the lack of food provided, and “losing weight” as a result.
