Mugshots

A mugshot, or intake photo, is the photo taken by the police when you are booked into jail. A mugshot is actually two photos one full face and a side picture. Your full name and jail booking number will appear on the pictures, and they will be on file at the jail.

View Mugshots

Mugshots can be viewed on the website, or you can view them at the Hutchinson County Jail. When viewing online you will need to put in the name, and an arrest date, if you have one.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed

Trying to figure out how to get your mugshot taken down from the Hutchinson County Jail site? This will be difficult, since your mugshot is a matter of public record. To get your mugshot removed you have to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. This means that your arrest record would 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, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, your bail will be determined by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

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

In most cases, a prisoner will earn time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will be required to stay jail every day after work, or you could be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay 10% of the amount that was set so you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

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 jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, its easy. First, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually charge a minimum of $100. This money is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will usually use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. This process will take anywhere between 30 minutes to all day long. So, the quicker you post bail, the sooner you will be freed. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether you have a bond amount or if a magistrate has to figure out how much to set your bail at. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a date of your release, expect to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell someone that you think there may be a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or even state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must provide each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will go into the visitation log as an approved visitor. Every visitor will be required to provide identification. Visitors that gets to visitation or without a visiting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so we suggest that you visit the official site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . These phone calls are much pricier than phone calls made outside of jail. There are certain restrictions about when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone privileges could be reduced or forbidden completely.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Hutchinson County Jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have 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 Hutchinson 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 Hutchinson 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 rules for sending money to someone in jail at Hutchinson County Jail can change, so check the the Hutchinson County Jail 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.
