— If you need money to get out of jail, you don't have to pass "GO" to get your $200.

An automated teller machine is now located at the Wake County Magistrate's Office in Raleigh.

It's purpose is to provide quick cash to people who are booked and need bail money. Authorities escort detainees to the ATM, where they can withdraw up to $200. That's often enough money for people charged with misdemeanors to post bail
