A mugshot, also called a booking picture, is a picture taken by the police when you get booked into jail. They take one frontal photo and a side picture. Your full name and booking number will be in the photos, and they’re stored.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to get your mugshot erased from the Cimarron County Jail site? This will be difficult, as the mugshot is a public record. To get your mugshot removed you must file a Petition to Expunge with the court. This means that your arrest record will be sealed, and will not be available 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
Of course, once you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to be in court on your court date, and you are required not to travel out of the county.
Typically, a prisoner will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day after work, or you could get to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until you go to court. Your bail amount is determined by the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to get discharged from jail. If you miss your court date, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the Cimarron County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Cimarron County Jail site.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it is easy. To start with, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases have 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 bail bondsman will use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through the jail intake procedure? If you have, you should tell our readers about your experience. How long did it take to get processed? How were you treated? Do you know any things that will help others get through jail processing?
Speak Your Mind
Once bail has been posted, you will be discharged from jail. This process takes from 15 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will be freed. Also, it might depend on whether you have a bond amount or if the magistrate must decide on how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a date of your release, expect to get discharged between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
If you have a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if so, they will take you into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring approved items with you, such as your driver’s license or photo ID, prescription medication, and a official sentencing order.
To have visitors, you have to give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail. Your visitors will go into the visitors log for the inmate. Every visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
The Cimarron County Jail visitation procedures change often, so we suggest that you double-check the official Cimarron County Jail jail site before you go to the jail to visit.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account. Phone calls made in jail are much pricier 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 you should keep in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, an inmate’s phone privileges may be limited or forbidden completely.

Sending Mail to Inmates
All mall sent to inmates must be sent using the actual US Postal Service, and not courier or delivery, or hand delivered. You must not use any other form of mail delivery. You should print the name, prisoner number, and the address of the jail on the envelope. Don’t mail a box, envelope with padding or insulation, plastic or paper bag, or an envelope with any metal in it. All mail received by the jail will be opened and inspected and read by the jail staff, and the mail will be returned to the sender if the jail decides it is inappropriate.

Cimarron County Jail
P.O. Box 835
Boise City, OK 73933
The mail policy is always changing, so you should double check the the Cimarron County Jail website before you send a letter to an inmate there.
Get A Lawyer
When you get arrested, you still have certain rights, and an important one is that you have the right to request an attorney. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so you would be wise to ask a friend or family member to locate a lawyer when you call. You may be asking yourself ‘but do I really need a lawyer’ You can represent yourself if you really want to, but, a criminal defense lawyer will make sure you know your rights, help protect your best interests and help you find your way through the legal system. The quicker you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better off you’ll be.

If you’ve been arrested and cannot afford a lawyer, you will be assigned a public defender. The Public Defender Office has access to investigators, forensics experts and social case workers. Public Defenders are real attorneys who are admitted to the Oklahoma State Bar Association and are completely licensed to practice law and represent you in court.
Have you or someone you know used a court appointed attorney? How did they do?
Cimarron County court records are a matter of public record. They contain a court case file with a docket and each of the documents and motions filed in the course of your case. You are able to access the records and documents in your court case with the online service, or by going to the Cimarron County Clerk of Court where the case was filed.
Clerk of Court
The Cimarron County Clerk of Court is an official part of the court that maintains court records. They also administer the oath for all court participants, and also read the verdict when delivered by the jury. All court records associated with your case are maintained at the office of the Clerk of Court.
Court fees are the charges and fees from your court case, for example filing charges, motion and claim fees, and court appearance fees. If you can’t afford to pay these fees and have court appointed legal counsel or a Public Defender, you can get a waiver for these fees and won’t have to pay them.
The magistrate is the type of judge that rules on your case. Magistrate judges do several different things, such as setting bail, issuing arrest warrants, and overseeing preliminary court proceedings and detention proceedings.
Your pre-sentencing report is completed to include the defendant’s background information and details of the arrestee’s life and history, which the judge will consider when deciding on the sentence. Information will be solicited from the person on trial, his or her family members, and, if applicable, the victim. Bear in mind that you should request to see your own copy of your pre-sentencing report before your sentencing, so you have the opportunity to correct any mistakes that it contains.
After being convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. There are a number of different options, ranging from community service and probation, to incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on how serious your crime was, you could be locked up immediately, or you could receive a date that you are supposed to turn yourself into jail to serve your sentence.
Do you need to find out if somebody you know is in jail, or has been an inmate in the past?

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Cimarron County jail is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast participate in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Cimarron 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 Cimarron 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 procedure to send money to jail inmates is always changing, so it would be best to check the official Cimarron County Jail 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.
