How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to figure out what to do in order to get your mugshot removed from the Maries County Jail site? This can be tricky, because the mugshot is a matter of public record.

Depending on your situation, this may be a longshot.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Once you’re locked up, your main thought is about when you get out. After booking, bail will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you are released from jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and you must not leave town.
Typically, inmates will earn time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to stay jail each day when you’re finished working, or you could be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to post ten percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever put up your bail money 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 need to call the Maries County Jail. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the Maries County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, its really easy. To start with, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you can’t get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.
If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually charge a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman may use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere between 30 minutes to all day long. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get let go. Also, it might depend on if you have a cash bond or if the magistrate needs to decide on the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the release date, you should expect to be released between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you need to start your sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go to the jail, and let them know that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if you do, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring allowed items when you go to jail, such as your driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates must provide the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail. This information will be put into the visitors log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Every visitor must provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or that does not have a visitation order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures change often, so review the official site before you try to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
All phone calls from jail are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account. Calls made in jail are typically more expensive than phone calls made at home. There are certain restrictions about how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone calls might get cut back or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Get A Lawyer
When you get arrested, you have certain rights, one of these is the right to request an attorney.

You may be asking yourself ‘but do I really need an attorney’ You’re not required to have an attorney in all cases, a criminal attorney can advise you of your rights, protect your interests and show you the way through the court system. The sooner you get a lawyer involved with your case, the better.

Have you ever had to use a court appointed attorney or Public Defender? Are you happy with how they handled your case?
All court records are public record and are available upon request to anyone who requests them – not just the person who they pertain to. Court records include a case file containing a sheet called a docket sheet and all motions, documents, and evidence filed in the course of your case.

The Maries County court magistrate is the judge that rules over your case in court. Magistrate judges do a number of different things, which include setting bail amounts, issuing warrants for arrest, and acting as the presiding judge over preliminary and procedural court proceedings and detention proceedings.
Your pre-sentencing report is prepared with information about your background and as much detail about the defendant’s life and history, which the magistrate will take into account when determining the sentence. Information and personal details will be gathered from the defendant, the defendant’s family, and in some circumstances the victim. Remember that you can request to get a copy of the pre-sentencing report before sentencing, and make sure that you correct any mistakes that it contains.
If you get convicted of a crime during your trial, you will then get sentenced. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, including community service and probation, to even incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on how serious your crime was, you may be taken into custody immediately, or you could get a date that you are supposed to surrender and report to jail to serve out your sentence.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Maries County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00AM, and then roll call. Then you will have breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to 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 Maries 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 Maries 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 someone in jail might change, so we suggest that you review the official Maries County Jail site when you send money to an inmate.
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.

They get to know the inmates on a certain level and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
