About the Austintown Township Jail
The local Austintown Township Jail is located in the town it’s named after and has been located in Austintown since its original build. It houses anyone who is arrested within the town and the surrounding county and is where they are processed and booked. Fingerprints, images, and arrest information are all recorded. This is the first point of detention after an arrest, and they will remain there until their arraignment, or their trial is completed. As it is the main holding center it has to accommodate people who are accused of all types of crimes, either misdemeanors or for felonies, until they are sentenced and in many cases the sentence is served in the same facility. Officers are present around the clock and meals, laundry, and medical care are all provided within the jail. Both male and female inmates are housed here, and they are separated both in the cells and in the cell blocks, eating meals separately. Phone calls are outgoing only, and monitored, but mail can be received. Visitation is encouraged and there are visiting hours most days, with a limit on how long the visits can be for each week. Two visits of 45 minutes are permitted during the hours between 8:15am and 4pm from Tuesday through Sunday. As the town grew the police department and the number of officers on staff have continued to grow with it, leading to the resulting facility and enough officers to staff it while still protecting the surrounding community.

Austintown Township Jail Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Mahoning County?

After being arrested and taken into custody, and after being read their Miranda Rights, an offender will next be transported to the local police or department or the Sheriff’s Department in Mahoning County for booking.

Booking is very involved and requires multiple steps in the process, however, keep in mind that most attorneys will advise that an offender remain silent and not offer any additional information about the crime they have been arrested for because anything they do say may be recorded and may very well be used against them in court.

What is the booking process like at the Austintown Township Jail?

Booking includes having their photo (mugshot) and fingerprints taken, as well as being asked a lot of questions about their personal history and state of mind. If it’s a serious felony, their DNA may also be taken. They will also be checked for warrants in Mahoning County and other Ohio and USA jurisdictions.

If the offender was arrested for a DUI offense, and has refused a breathalyzer test, they may also be forced to have blood drawn by a doctor or nurse.

It is also very likely that the offender will undergo a humiliating full body search while in the nude. This includes bending over, spreading their cheeks in the direction of an officer, and coughing. They will also be walked through a metal detector or x-ray machine, like those used at an airport.

What kind of questions are asked during booking?

The arresting jurisdiction will ask about gang affiliations, tattoos, medical conditions, prescribed medication they are taking, recreational drugs they are on or addicted to, allergies, if they are suicidal, and other relevant information that will help with determining their cell assignment and special needs.

What happens to an offender’s personal property during booking?

During the arrest and booking process an offender will also have all their personal property confiscated and held for either their release from jail, or with the offender’s approval, released to a friend or family member.

Personal property includes the clothing they are wearing, money, wallets, purses, cell phones, jewelry, body rings, earrings, watches, and even glasses if they are deemed a security risk. If they are allowed to keep their shoes or sneakers, the laces are removed.

What happens after booking?

At this point the offender will be allowed to make a free phone call to a person of their choice to notify them of their arrest, and/or arrange a bond or bail for their release.

If the offender is being detained and housed while awaiting arraignment, the Austintown Township Jail will provide a jail garment and slip-on shoes, a blanket, sheets, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a towel.

Often, before they are dressed in the jail outfit and brought to their housing location, they will be forced to take a shower and undergo a disinfectant treatment for body and hair lice, scabies or other pests that may be residing on their person.

How long does the Austintown Township Jail Booking process take?

Booking can take anywhere from an hour to 24 hours or more. It all depends on the number of people that are awaiting processing, the number of staff on duty at the time, and the behavior of the offender.

If the offender is heavily intoxicated and/or violent, the Booking Officer may decide to stick the offender in a holding cell for several hours until they become more manageable.

Inmate Bail and Bonding

The Mahoning County Sheriff recommends that you use a bail bond agent licensed to do business in Mahoning County.

  • You can pay a cash bond yourself, or use your home in Mahoning County, or in some cases the state of Ohio, but the benefit of using a bail bond agent is that they take responsibility for making sure the inmate shows up for court in Mahoning County, and if they don't, then they take the financial responsibility.
  • The typical fee for a bond will be between 10-20% of the bail amount; usually 15%.  So if an offender has a bail of $10,000.00, their bond will be $1500.00.

Call 330-799-9721 to find out the exact bond (plus other fees) amount, or look it up online by looking up the information on the Mahoning County inmate locator.

Mahoning County Bail Bond Information

Because Mahoning County and Ohio can change their bail bond procedures, it is always best to call either the Austintown Township Jail at 330-799-9721, or the court in the jurisdiction (i.e. Municipal Court, District Court, etc.) where the offender was charged, and do this right after an arrestee has been booked. 

Ask the staff at the Austintown Township Jail or the Mahoning County Court Clerk these specific questions:

  1. Is the defendant eligible for bail or a bond?
  2. How much will the bail or bond be, and what are the additional fees?
  3. Where do I go to pay it?
  4. Are there any days or times of the day or night when I cannot post bail?
  5. What types of payment are allowed? Cash? Money order? Credit card? What types of credit cards? Property or other collateral? Surety bonds?
  6. Do I have to use a bail or bond agent?

If you feel the bail is too high and you wish to get it reduced, contact a lawyer or the defendant's public defender and get them to look into what they can do to get a bail reduction. The sooner you get working on this the quicker you will get your loved one released. 

This entire process will go smoother and faster with a criminal attorney or bail agent handling it for you.
