A mugshot, also known as a intake photograph, is a picture taken by the police when you are processed at the jail intake. They take one frontal photo and a side picture. Your name and jail ID number will be in the mugshot, and they’re on file.
Mugshots of inmates can be searched on the Hoke Correctional Institution website, or you can see them at the Hoke Correctional Institution. When you search for mugshots on the website you need to put in the prisoner’s first and last name, and a booking date, if you have one.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Do you want to have your mugshot taken off of the Hoke Correctional Institution website? This can be tricky, as the mugshot is a public record. To get your mugshot taken down you have to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. Basically, this means that all of your arrest records will 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
Once you are in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that date you are required not to leave the county.
In most cases, a prisoner in the Hoke Correctional Institution will be given time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while incarcerated.
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 either have to stay jail each day after work, or you might be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.
Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. Your bail amount is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Hoke Correctional Institution. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Hoke Correctional Institution site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its really easy. First, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum 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 will require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

When you pay your bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged may take from 15 minutes to many hours. In other words the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get out of jail. It also depends on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond or if a judge needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the release date, you should expect to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
If there is a, or if you need to start your sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell an officer that you think they might have an outstanding 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, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed when you go, such as your driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order from court.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to give each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will go into a log of visitors for the inmate that requested the visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies can change, so you should check the official jail site before you go.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account. Calls made in jail are much more expensive than regular phone calls. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on when and how often you can use the phone, but bear in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get reduced or eliminated altogether.
The Hoke Correctional Institution phone number is: 910-944-7612
Sending Mail to Inmates
All mall sent to inmates is required to be mailed using the actual US Postal Service. You shouldn’t use any other type of mail or package delivery. You have to write the person’s name, inmate ID number, and the address of the jail on the letter. Do not mail anything in a box, envelope with padding, bag, or an envelope with any metal in it. Any mail is opened and reviewed by the jail officers, and will be sent back to the person who mailed it if the jail decides it is inappropriate.

Get A Lawyer
When you get arrested, you have particular rights, and an important one is that you have the right to request an attorney. Remember that you may be limited to the amount of phone calls you can make, so make sure you ask a friend or family member to locate an attorney when you call them. You might be thinking ‘I don’t need a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you really want to, but, a criminal lawyer will make sure you know your rights, protect your interests and help you navigate through the criminal justice system. The sooner you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your case, the better.

If you are in trouble, but can’t afford an attorney, a Public Defender will be assigned to you. The Public Defender Office has a number of staff such as investigators, crime scene and forensics experts and social case workers. You will be reassured to know that Public Defenders are bona-fide attorneys who are members of the State Bar and are fully licensed to practice law as an agent of the court.

The Hoke County magistrate is the judge that presides on your case in court. Magistrates are judges that do several different things, which include determining how much your bail will be, issuing arrest warrants, and overseeing preliminary court hearings and detention proceedings.
A defendant’s pre-sentencing report is prepared with the defendant’s background information and details of the arrestee’s life and history, which the judge will take into consideration when determining the sentence. Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the defendant, the defendant’s family, and in some circumstances the victim in the crime. Don’t forget you can request to get a copy of the pre-sentencing report before you are sentenced, so you have the opportunity to review it and correct any mistakes.
When you are convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, ranging from community service, house arrest, and probation, to even incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on how serious your crime was, you might get locked up immediately, or given a date that you must to surrender and report to jail to serve your jail term according to your sentence.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Hoke County jail is no fun, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have 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 Hoke Correctional Institution, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Hoke Correctional Institution 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 at Hoke Correctional Institution might change, so we suggest that you review the official Hoke Correctional Institution site before you send any money.
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.
