When an individual gets arrested it’s not really unusual that they miss some of the information that is given to them. This does not mean that they have to wait until they speak to their attorney to get the information. Once in a Living Unit the inmate can ask the Living Unit Officer for an Inmate Request for Information Form (Appendix A). Using this form inmates can get information like who the judge is on his case, the court date, the bond amount, what the charge is, what the fine amount is (if there is one), who their court appointed attorney is and even how much money they have in their commissary account.
What some inmates may be tempted to do is call someone outside the jail then have that person make a conference call to Central Records to try to get the information. Don’t bother. Central Records will not assist people on a conference call and quite a bit of that information they don’t have anyway. In addition, the call could be reported to the Living Unit Officer as a violation of the rules and regulations and may be subject to disciplinary action.
