Mugshots

A mugshot, also known as a jail booking picture, is the picture that the jail takes when you get processed at jail intake. A mugshot is actually one frontal photo and one profile photo. Your name and intake number will appear on the mugshot, and they’re kept on file at the jail.

View Mugshots

Mugshotes of Pawnee County Jail prisoners can be searched on the Pawnee County Jail website, or you can go in person to the Pawnee County Jail. When viewing online you will have to put in the inmate’s full name, and the booking date.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed

Trying to figure out how to have your mugshot erased from the Pawnee County Jail site? This can be tricky, as your mugshot is a matter of public record. You need to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. This means that your arrest record would be sealed, so no one will be able to access them. 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

Obviously, if you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you will have to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you can’t leave town.

Typically, prisoners in the Pawnee County Jail will earn time off in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be granted work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you may have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone you know will need to post 10% of the amount set before you can bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, whoever paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it’s really easy. First, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail can’t take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. They will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually with a minimum of $100. This money will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might request to use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process may take anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the faster you can post bail, the faster you will get let go. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond or if a magistrate has to determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should expect to be released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

For a warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell an officer that you think there is a warrant for your arrest.

If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring allowed items when you go, such as a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Pawnee County Jail is no fun, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to 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 Pawnee County Jail, 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 Pawnee County Jail 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 procedure to send funds to Pawnee County Jail inmates is likely to change, so it would be best to review the site before you send money to an inmate 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.
