A mugshot, or jail processing photo, is the photograph taken by the police when you are processed at the jail intake. They will take one frontal photo and a side photo. Your full name and intake number will be on the photos, and they’re kept on file.
Mugshots can be found on the website, or you can view them at the Crisp County Jail. When viewing online you will need to put in the prisoner’s legal name, and an arrest date, if you have it.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to get your mugshot removed from the Crisp County Jail site? This is difficult, since the mugshot is public record. To get your mugshot taken down you have to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. This means that your arrest record would be sealed, so no one will be able to see them. Unfortunately, this happens very rarely.
Read our in-depth tutorial about removing your mugshot, the different websites with mugshots, and the websites that offer to remove your mugshot for you: How To Remove Your Mugshot from the Internet
Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, if you are locked up, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount is set by the magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and until then you won’t be permitted to go out of town.
In most cases, a prisoner will be given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.
Bail is money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to post ten percent of the total that was determined so you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the Crisp County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Crisp County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail will not accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in most cases request to use your assets as collateral.

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process may take anywhere from 10 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the faster you will get discharged. How quickly you get discharged depends on if you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if the judge needs to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a discharge date, you should plan to get released in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If the police have a, or if you have to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail, and tell them that think that there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they find one, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Be sure to only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, like a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to give each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will go in a Visiting log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Every visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so visit the official jail site before you visit an inmate.
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. These phone calls are generally more expensive than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules and are disciplined, your ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely.
Phone Number: (229) 276-2600
Sending Mail to Inmates
All mail is required to be sent using the actual US Postal Service, and not courier or delivery, or hand delivered. You can’t use any other type of mail or package delivery. You have to print the name, inmate number, and the address of the jail on the envelope. Don’t send a box or package, envelope with padding or insulation, plastic or paper bag, or an envelope with any metal in it. Any mail is opened and inspected by the officers at the jail, and will be returned if deemed inappropriate.

Get A Lawyer
Even if you’ve been arrested, you have particular rights, the first of which is that you have the right to request an attorney. You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so make sure you ask a friend or family member to locate a lawyer when you call. You’re probably asking yourself ‘I don’t need a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you really want to, but, a criminal lawyer can advise you of your rights, look after your best interests and help you navigate the complicated legal system in Crisp County. The faster you get an attorney working on your case, the better off you’ll be.

Information and personal details will be solicited from the person on trial, his or her family, and in some circumstances the victim of the crime. Be sure to remember that you can request to get your own copy of the report before you are sentenced, and review it and correct any mistakes.
If you get convicted of a crime during your trial, you will then get sentenced.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of getting locked up in the Crisp County jail is very scary, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Crisp County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Crisp 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 funds to someone in jail might change, so you should visit the official website when you send money to an inmate there.
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.
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.
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.
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.

They get to know the inmates on a certain level and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
