Mugshots can be found online, or you can see them in person at the Cleburne County Detention Center. When viewing online you need to enter the prisoner’s legal name, and the arrest date, if you know it.
How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Trying to figure out how to get your mugshot taken down from the Cleburne County Detention Center website? This will be difficult, since the mugshot is public record. To get your mugshot taken down you will need to file a Petition to Expunge with the court. Basically, this means that the record of your arrest will be sealed, and unavailable to the public. Unfortunately, this happens very rarely.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you are locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.
If you do bail out you must promise to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you will not be permitted to go out of town.
Usually, prisoners will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while they’re in jail.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You will have to pay 10% of the amount that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to court, whoever put up your bail money will lose that bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You must call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Cleburne County Detention Center website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, its easy. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.
If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases charge a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman might ask to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process may take from 10 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you can post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. Also, it depends on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. 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 know the discharge date, expect to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and let them know that believe that there could be a warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to list each visitor’s full name to the jail. This information will be put in the visitors log as an authorized visitor.

Visitation procedures at Cleburne County Detention Center frequently change, so we suggest that you review the official Cleburne County Detention Center jail site before you try to go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are a lot pricier than phone calls made outside of jail. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you break the jail rules, phone privileges might get reduced or forbidden completely.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
While the prospect of spending time in Cleburne County Detention Center is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will settle into the daily routine. You should expect an alarm for wake-up at 6am, and then roll call. After roll call 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 Cleburne County Detention Center, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Cleburne County Detention Center 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 jail inmates changes, so it would be best to check the official Cleburne County Detention Center site before send money 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.
