A mugshot, also known as a jail intake photograph, is the picture that the police take when you get booked into jail. A mugshot is made up of one full face photo and a profile picture. Your full name and intake number will appear on the photos, and they are on file at the jail.
Mugshots of people who have been arrested can be searched on the website, or you can view them at the Haskell County Jail. When viewing mugshots online you will need to input the legal name, and the booking date, if you have one.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to get your mugshot removed from the Haskell County Jail website? This can be tricky, because the mugshot is a matter of public record. To get your mugshot taken down you will need to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. Basically, this means that your arrest record would be sealed, and will not be accessible. 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 in jail, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you are released you are required to promise to go to your court date, and until that date you won’t be allowed to leave the area.
Typically, inmates will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.
Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. Someone you know will need to post 10 percent of the total set so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, that person will lose that bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You will need to call the Haskell County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, it is easy. To start with, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not accept checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral.

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process can take from 15 minutes to many hours. So, the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get released. It also might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if the magistrate has to decide on how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and have a release date, plan to get discharged that morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and let them know that believe that there could be a warrant out 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, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you go to jail, such as your driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a copy of the sentencing order.
To have visitors, you must list each visitor’s name to the jail in advance. This information will go into a log of visitors for the inmate that requested the visitor. All visitors will be required to provide acceptable photo identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures can change, so you should visit the official site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

There is no limit to how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone privileges may be limited or totally denied.

The faster you get a lawyer involved with your charges, the better.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of getting locked up in the Haskell County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will work 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 Haskell 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 Haskell 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 jail inmates could change, so you should check the the Haskell County Jail website before send funds 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.

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.
