Mugshots

A mugshot, or jail booking picture, is the photograph taken by the police when you get booked into jail. They will take one face photo and a side picture. Your name and jail ID number will be on the pictures, and they’re on file.

View Mugshots

Mugshots of inmates are on the website, or you can see them at the Canadian County Jail. When viewing online you have to put in their first and last name, and a booking date, if you know it.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed

Trying to figure out how to have your mugshot taken off of the Canadian County Jail site? This will be difficult, as your mugshot is a public record. You have to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. This means that all of your arrest records will be sealed, so no one will be able to see 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

Once you are arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be determined 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 court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and you must not travel out of the county.

Usually, an inmate will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount set so you can bail out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Canadian County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail will not accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will usually require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will get discharged from jail. This process may take anywhere from 30 minutes to all day. In other words the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get discharged from jail. Also, how fast you get released will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to determine 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. When you have served your sentence and have a discharge date, expect to be discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to report to start a sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail, and tell someone that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if so, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Just bring necessary items when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put in a log of approved visitors as an Authorized visit. Every visitor must provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so make sure that you review the official Canadian County Jail jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Jail phone calls are much more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. Phone calls are restricted on when and how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you break the jail rules, an inmate’s phone privileges could be reduced or cut altogether.

Phone Number: 405-422-3188

Sending Mail to Inmates

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the Canadian County jail is no fun, in time you will get used to the daily routine there. You will get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6am, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will have breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Canadian 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 Canadian 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 process for sending funds to people in jail can change, so it would be best to visit the the Canadian County Jail website when 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.
