How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Are you trying to figure out what to do in order to have your mugshot taken off of the Warren County Jail site? This may not be possible, because the mugshot is public record. To get your mugshot removed you will need to file a ‘Petition to Expunge’. Basically, this means that your arrest record would 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
If you are locked up, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that day you are required not to travel out of the county.
Typically, inmates in the Warren County Jail will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while locked up.
If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to jail every day after work, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house when you are not working.
Your bail is how much money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by how serious your charges are. You will need to put up ten percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Warren 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 easy if you have the money. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman may require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail may take between 10 minutes to quite a few hours. So, the quicker you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. It also can depend on whether you have a cash bond or if the magistrate must decide on the bail amount. For minor offenses, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and have a release date, you should plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you have to report to start a sentence, you really should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and let them know that think that there is a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring necessary items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a official sentencing order.
Inmates need to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. This information will be entered into a Visiting log as an approved visitor.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Warren County jail is very scary, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect an alarm to wake up each morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have 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 Warren 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 Warren 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 funds to jail inmates could change, so double check the the Warren County Jail website when you send any funds.
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.
