How To Get Your Mugshot Removed

Are you trying to figure out what to do in order to get your mugshot erased from the Marshall County Jail site? This can be tricky, since the mugshot is public record. To get your mugshot taken down you will need to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. What this means is that all of your arrest records would be sealed, and will not be accessible. 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 are incarcerated, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to show up for court, and in the meantime you will not be permitted to go out of town.

In most cases, inmates in the Marshall County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while locked up.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay depends on how serious your charges are. You will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was determined so you can bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, its really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman may use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process may take between 15 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will get out of jail. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether or not you have a bond amount or if the magistrate must decide on the amount of bail to be set. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a discharge date, you should plan to get released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. For a warrant, report to the jail intake area, and tell the intake officer that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring approved items with you, for example your drivers license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to give each visitor’s name to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will be entered in the log as an approved visitor. Each visitor will be required to provide proof of identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies frequently change, so you should check the official Marshall County Jail jail site before you go.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Calls made in jail are typically more expensive than regular phone calls. Phone calls are restricted on 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 and are disciplined, an inmate’s ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Marshall County jail is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm to wake up each morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Marshall 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 Marshall 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 money to jail inmates could change, so check the the Marshall County Jail website when you send any funds.

    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.
