A mugshot, also called a jail processing photo, is the picture that the police take when you are processed at the jail intake. A mugshot is actually one and a profile photo. Your name and booking number will be on the mugshot, and they are stored.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed

Are you trying to have your mugshot removed from the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility site? This will be difficult, because your mugshot is a public record. To get your mugshot taken down you have to file a Petition to Expunge in court. Basically, this means that your arrest record will be sealed, and will not be available to the public. It is difficult to do this, and you will most likely need the services of a lawyer.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until that date you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

Usually, a prisoner can earn time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to go back to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever posted your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will have to call the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, its simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The jail intake process includes each of these steps:

  • They’ll put you in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you will have to wait a while to get processed.
  • The first step is that you must answer a bunch of questions, like your full name, home address, date of birth and an emergency contact person.
  • Also, you will also be asked about your medical and mental history.
  • You will be given an inmate ID number.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • Any property you have will get taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
  • You will get to make a phone call in order to contact a member of your family, friend, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, they will let you wear your street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail jumpsuit.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through the jail intake procedure? If you have, you should share your experience so others can benefit from your story. How long did it take? What was you treatment like? Do you know any things that might help others make it through jail intake?

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. This process will take from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster you can post bail, the quicker you will be released. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond amount or if the judge must decide on how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a discharge date, you should expect to get released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell the intake officer that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if there is one, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Make sure that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring required items with you, for example your drivers license or even your ID, prescription medication, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will go into a log of approved visitors as an Authorized visit. Each and every visitor will have to provide proof of identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies can change, so you should review the official site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

All phone calls from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . These phone calls are a lot more costly than phone calls made at home. There is no limit to when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules, phone privileges might get cut back or forbidden.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

When you get arrested, you have certain rights, the first of which is that you have the right to request a lawyer. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so you would be wise to get a friend or family member to locate an attorney for you. You’re probably asking yourself ‘I don’t have to get a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You’re not required to have an attorney in all cases, a lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your interests and help you navigate through the complicated legal system in Pulaski County. The quicker you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your case, the better.

For more info on the benefits of hiring a lawyer, read our guide: How to Find an Attorney

Public Defender

If you’ve been arrested and cannot afford a lawyer, a Public Defender will be assigned to you. The Public Defender’s Office has access to private investigators, experts in forensics as well as case workers. Public Defenders are bona-fide lawyers who are admitted to the Arkansas State Bar Association and are legally licensed to practice law in Arkansas.

Have you or someone you know used the services of a Public Defender? Are you happy with how they handled your case?

Court Records

Pulaski County court records are a matter of public record. They are comprised of a case file containing a docket and all documents and motions that have been filed in the case. You are able to access court records using the internet service, or by going to the Clerk of Court’s office where the case was filed.

Clerk of Court

A Clerk of Court is a member of the court who manages the records. The Clerk of Court also administer the oath for anyone testifying in court, and read the verdict when decided by the jury. All records associated with your court case are available at the office of the Clerk of Court.

Fees

Court fees are the costs associated with your case, such as for example filing charges, motion and claim fees, and court appearance fees. If you don’t have the money to pay these fees and have been assigned a Public Defender, you may not have to pay them.

Magistrate

The magistrate acts as the judge who presides over your case in court. They do many different things, which include setting your bail amount, issuing warrants for arrest, and acting as the presiding judge over first court appearances and detention proceedings.

Pre-Sentencing

Your pre-sentencing report is completed to include background information and as much detail about the defendant’s life and history, which the magistrate judge will consider when determining the sentence. Information will be collected from the person on trial, his or her family members, and in some circumstances the victim of the crime. Keep in mind that you can ask to get your own copy of your pre-sentencing report before you are sentenced, so you can correct any mistakes that it contains.

Sentencing

After you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, ranging from community service to probation, to even prison or jail time. Depending on sentencing guidelines and the severity of your crime, you may be taken into custody, right there in court, or you could get a date that you are required to report to jail to serve your term.

  • DUI.
  • Drug crimes.
  • Kidnapping.
  • Sexual offenses including rape, assault.

  • Drivers license revoked or suspended.
  • Traffic accidents.
  • Other moving violations.
  • Parking Tickets.
  • To find driving histories, you will have to do a driving history search.

Was the information correct? There are plenty of reasons that people look up criminal records, and your feedback might help other people.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility is quite unpleasant, soon you will get used to the daily routine there. Expect an alarm to wake up every morning at 6am, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility 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 process for sending money to jail inmates can change, so review the the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility website before send money to someone in jail there.

    Commissary

    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.

    Inmate Medications

    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.

    Meals

    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.

    Gangs

    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.
