A mugshot, also known as a jail intake photo, is the photograph taken by the police when you get booked into jail. They will take one full face and a side picture. Your full name and jail booking number will appear on the mugshot, and they will be stored at the jail.
Mugshots of people who have been arrested can be viewed online, or you can go in person to the Kane County Jail. When you search for mugshots online you need to input the prisoner’s full name, and an arrest date.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to get your mugshot removed from the Kane County Jail site? This can be tricky, as your mugshot is public record. To get your mugshot removed you need to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. What this means is that your arrest record would 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
If you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about how to get out. After booking, your bail will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you can’t go out of town.
In most cases, inmates can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while locked up.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you might get to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.
Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set so you can bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someone’s bail is, you must call the Kane County Jail. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Kane County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is easy. To start with, find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process takes anywhere between 10 minutes to all day. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get released. Also, it might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond or if a judge needs to decide on your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a release date, plan to be released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
If the sheriff has a, or if you must begin your sentence in jail, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail, and tell them that you think there is a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they find one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Be sure that you are not late to report. Just bring necessary items with you, for example your driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as an official sentencing order.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Kane County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Kane 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 Kane 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 someone in jail at Kane County Jail can change, so we suggest that you check the official website when send money to someone in jail 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.
