A mugshot, or intake picture, is the picture that the jail takes when you get processed at jail intake. A mugshot is actually two photos one and a profile photo. Your full name and booking number will appear on the mugshot, and they are stored.
Mugshots can be viewed on the Lincoln County Jail website, or you can see them in person at the Lincoln County Jail. When viewing online you have to input the full name, and a booking date, if you know it.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to get your mugshot erased from the Lincoln County Jail website? This may not be possible, because the mugshot is a matter of public record. To get your mugshot taken down you have to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. This means that all of your arrest records would be sealed, and unavailable 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
If you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, 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 that date you won’t be allowed to travel out of the county.
Typically, inmates will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you might be permitted 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 you will have to pay depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will have to pay 10% of the amount that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.
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. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s very simple to do. To start with, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’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 will get this money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will request to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail will take anywhere from 10 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if a judge needs to figure out the bail amount. For minor offenses, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a discharge date, you should plan to get discharged in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
If you have a, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, you should follow the law and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail, and tell someone that believe that there could be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if there is one, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you aren’t late. Just bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, such as a driver’s license or state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order from court.
The inmate must list each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered into the log as an approved visitor. Every visitor is required to provide acceptable photo identification. Visitors that gets to visitation or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so it would be wise to double-check the jail site before you visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Phone calls made in jail are typically more expensive than phone calls made at home. There is no limit to 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 under any sort of disciplinary procedure, an inmate’s phone privileges might get cut back or cut altogether.

All mail has to be sent via the actual US Postal Service. You shouldn’t use any other form of mail or package delivery. You should write the inmate’s name, inmate ID number, and the jail address on the letter that you send. Do not send anything in a box or package, envelope with padding, plastic or paper bag, or an envelope containing metal parts.

Get A Lawyer
Even if you’ve been arrested, you have rights, and an important one is the right to request an attorney. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so it is a good idea to have a friend or family member find a lawyer when you talk to them. You might be asking yourself ‘I don’t have to get a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ While you are not required to have one, an attorney will make sure you know your rights, help protect your interests and help you understand the complicated legal system that you are now faced with. The sooner you get an attorney working on your case, the better off you’ll be.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that spending time in Lincoln County Jail is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to work 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 Lincoln 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 Lincoln 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 is always changing, so it would be best to review the official website before 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.
