To get your mugshot removed you will need to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. This means that the record of your arrest will be sealed, so no one will be able to see them. Unfortunately, this happens very rarely.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to show up for court, and until that day you must not leave the area.

In most cases, a prisoner in the Camden County Detention Center will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you may have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set depends on how serious your crime is. Someone will have to pay ten percent of the total that was determined before you can be released. If you miss court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the Camden County Detention Center. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, its simple to do if you have the money. To start with, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t get a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in most cases request to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process can take anywhere between 30 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged. It also can depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For lesser charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, you should plan to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and tell them that think that there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if you do, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you are not late. Only bring necessary items when you go, for example a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order from court.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you need to be aware that you still have rights, one of these is your right to request an attorney.

You’re probably asking yourself ‘do I really need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal defense lawyer will make sure you know your rights, protect your interests and show you the way through the court system that you are now faced with. The faster you get a lawyer involved with your charges, the better.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the Camden County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will have 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 Camden County Detention Center, 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 Camden County Detention Center 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 people in jail can change, so it would be best to double check the official Camden County Detention Center site before you send any money.

    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.
