How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to figure out what to do in order to get your mugshot removed from the Nemaha County Jail site? This may not be possible, since the mugshot is a public record. You will need to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. Basically, this means that your arrest record will be sealed, and unavailable to the public. Depending on your situation, this may be a longshot.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released you must agree to show up for court, and until then you will not be permitted to travel out of the county.
Usually, a prisoner at Nemaha County Jail will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you may get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Your bail is money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount set so you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someone’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’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Nemaha County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Bailing out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, its very simple to do. To start with, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. They will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Jail Policies and Procedures
Intake Procedures / Booking
The jail intake procedure is made up of the following steps:
- They’ll put you in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you may not be processed immediately.
- You must answer a number of questions, like your full name, your address, birthdate and contact person.
- You will also be asked about your mental and medical history.
- You will be issued an inmate ID number.
- You will get fingerprinted.
- They will take your mugshot.
- All of your personal property will get taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
- They will allow you to use the telephone so you can get in touch with family, friends, or bail bondsman.
- If you think you will get released quickly, you will be allowed to wear your street clothes, if not you will be given a jail uniform.
Have you ever been booked into jail? If you have, you should tell your story so other people can learn from your experience. How long did it take to get through intake? Were you treated fairly? Do you have any things that will help other people to get through jail processing?

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process takes anywhere from 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the quicker you will get discharged. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond or if a judge must decide on your bail amount. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a discharge date, you should plan to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you must start a jail sentence, you really should follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and let them know that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you are not late. Just bring approved items with you, such as your driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order.
To have visitors, you must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail. Your visitor’s names will go in the visitors log as an Authorized visit. All visitors will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors arriving late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
The Nemaha County Jail visitation procedures are always changing, so you should visit the official jail site before you go to the jail to visit.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
All phone calls from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Jail phone calls are a lot more expensive than regular phone calls. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates must keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you are disciplined for an infraction, phone privileges could be reduced or forbidden.
Phone Number: 402-274-3139
Sending Mail to Inmates
All inmate mail has to be sent using the actual US Postal Service, and not courier or delivery, or hand delivered. You cannot use any other form of mail delivery. You have to clearly print the person’s name, prisoner number, and jail address on the outside of the letter that you send. Do not send anything in a box or package, padded envelope, plastic or paper bag, or an envelope with any metal in it. All mail gets opened and read and inspected by the jail administration, and will get returned if the jail decides it is inappropriate.

Get A Lawyer
If you have been arrested, you have certain rights, one of these being your right to request an attorney. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so make sure to have a friend or relative find a lawyer when you call. You might be asking yourself ‘do I really need an attorney?’ You are not required to have an attorney for some criminal charges, a lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your best interests and guide you through the legal system that you are now faced with. The faster you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better.

The Nemaha County court magistrate is the judge that rules over your case in court. Magistrates do different functions, which include setting your bail amount, writing arrest warrants, and overseeing initial court appearances and detention hearings.
A defendant’s pre-sentencing report is completed with information about the defendant’s background and as much detail about the arrestee’s life and public history, which the magistrate judge will review and take into consideration when deciding on the sentence. Information will be gathered from the person on trial, his or her family members, and in some cases the victim of the crime. Be sure to remember you can ask to receive your own copy of the pre-sentencing report prior to sentencing, so you have the opportunity to go over it and correct any mistakes in it.
When you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, which include community service and probation, to even prison or jail time. Depending on the particulars of your trial, the severity of your crime, and any sentencing guidelines that they judge will use, you may be locked up immediately, or given a date that you are supposed to turn yourself into jail to do your time.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that spending time in Nemaha County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will have 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 Nemaha 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 Nemaha 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 funds to people in jail could change, so it would be best to double check the official website when you send funds 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.
