To get your mugshot removed you have to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. Basically, this means that all of your arrest records would be sealed, so no one will be able to access them. Unfortunately, this happens very rarely.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you’re in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail will be determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you must agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you must not go out of town.
Typically, a prisoner will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you may get to move into a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will need to put up 10 percent of the total that was determined so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you miss your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. To start with, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you can’t get a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman might use your assets as collateral.

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail can take between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster you can post bail, the sooner you will be released. How quickly you get discharged depends on if you have a cash bond or if the magistrate has to determine the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and are given a discharge date, you should plan to be discharged in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell them that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if so, you will be taken into jail custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Only bring approved items when you turn yourself in, like your driver’s license or your ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the sentencing order.
To have visitors, you must list each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s names will go in the visitors log for the inmate that requested the visitor. All visitors must provide identification. Anyone showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so you should visit the jail site before you go.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls are restricted on when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you are disciplined for an infraction, an inmate’s phone privileges might get cut back or forbidden completely.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Rich County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get used to the daily routine. You should expect an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate 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 Rich 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 Rich 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 inmates is likely to change, so you should double check the official Rich County Jail site before you send any funds.
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.

An inmate is unlikely to have much interaction with the Deputy Sheriff, unless they have committed an infraction. Detention Officers are responsible for the custody and care of the inmates. They maintain order in the jail, and handle security. A Detention Officer is assigned to a certain pod, and therefore is responsible for the same inmates each day. They get to know the inmates on a certain level and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
