Inmate Search in Nemaha County Jail

The Nemaha County Jail does not have an available list of inmates incarcerated in their facility. The State of Kansas, however, offers statewide inmate search, with the Kansas Criminal Justice Information System through the Kansas Adult Supervised Population Electronic Repository (KASPER), with filters like First, Last and Middle Names, KDOC Number, Social Security Number, State ID (KBI) Number, and Advanced Search (Race, Gender, Birth Date, Age Range, Conviction County, Parole Supervision County, CC Supervision Location, Facility (Inmates Only), Supervision Type. Each inmate file contains their Names, Birthdates, Demographics (Eye Color, Hair Color, Height, Weight, Gender, Race), Current Status reported by Dept. of Corrections, Convictions (County, Case Number (I), Offense Date, Sentencing Date, ACS, Criminal Conviction Description, Counts, Crime Severity Level, Case Status (II), State), KDOC Physical Location History(s) (Location, Movement Date, Movement Reason), KDOC Disciplinary Report(s) since January 1996 (Date, Class, Location, Type of report). It’s recommended to visit the Jail personally at 212 N 6th St, Seneca, Kansas or call them at 785.336.2311 for inquiries.

The current, linear-style jail was built in 1978. With five cells coming off of an L-shaped hallway, it was built to hold 12 inmates. Additional bunks were added in recent years, allowing the jail to accommodate 15 inmates if necessary. The current jail requires direct supervision by jailers, which means the jailers have to check on all cells in person multiple times a day, something Vernon characterizes as a security risk for those employees.

A new, 15,000 square foot addition would be built directly west of, and still attached to, the current jail, Nemaha County Sheriff’s Department offices and the County Courthouse. The proposed addition is designed with 15 cells accommodating up to 34 beds. The Jail Administrator is Lori Yunghans.

Inmates of the Nemaha County Jail are allowed to have visits while being incarcerated at the jail, except when an inmate is restricted from doing so.

It is the inmate’s responsibility to comply with all rules and to inform their visitors of these rules, so that a scheduled visit is successfully completed.

If time permits for a second visitation, then it will be permitted. Only two visitors will be allowed at one time. Any additional persons must wait in the waiting area if room permits. All others must remain outside the office. All persons under the age of eighteen must be accompanied by their legal guardian. All visitors must be properly dressed. No revealing clothing.

    Sex Offender Search and Lookup

    All registered sex offenders are registered on either a national or state sex offender database. The people on these databases have been convicted of a sex or kidnapping crime. The definition of a sex offender is a person convicted of a crime involving sex, including rape, molestation, and production or distribution of child pornography.

    You can access this information online for Nemaha County by going to this link, but bear in mind that searches sometimes reveal primary last known addresses or, rather the block that they live on. You are also required to accept a disclosure to use the database.

    Bail and Bail Bondsman

    A bond is a monetary guarantee that a defendant will show up in court when ordered by a judge. The defendant signs his bond which is a written promise that if he does not show up as required he will forfeit the bail amount to the court along with any fees. For all practical purposes there is no difference between a bond and bail. A cosigner or bondsman may also sign and post bond on the defendant’s behalf, giving the court additional assurances that the defendant will make his court appearances.

    Kansas accepts the following types on bond.

    Cash Bond. The defendant gives the money to the court to get his release. The money is returned at the end of the trial if the defendant completes their court responsibilities.

    Personal Recognizance. This is also referred to as own recognizance or a signature bond. This allows the defendant to get out of jail without posting cash or assets as securities

    Surety Bond. This involves participation of a professional surety, a bondsman. The bondsman promises the court the defendant will appear or the bondsman will pay the court the amount of the bond.

    Cash Deposit. Ten percent of the bond amount is given to the court up front. Most of the money is returned at the end of the case if the defendant takes care of all his court responsibilities.

    Property Bond. The deed to a home or real estate is signed over to the court to guarantee the defendant’s participation in their court orders. This is fairly uncommon.

    1. Applicable Statutes.
    2. At one time, Kansas had very detailed provisions regarding bail in Kansas Statutes ANNOTATED CHAPTER 61.–PROCEDURE, CIVIL, FOR LIMITED ACTIONS ARTICLE 3.–ARREST AND BAIL. However, this article was repealed.
