Pay To Stay In Jail

booking fees
Many county jails in Ohio have a pay to stay in jail policy. The ACLU issued a report on this practice, stating that this burdens a population that likely cannot afford such fees in the first place.  Potential fees include booking fees and daily lodging fees.  According to the report, the jails in Holmes County, Medina County, Cuyahoga County, Ashland County and Summit County do not charge any of these fees.  The Wayne County jail was listed a charging a $10 booking fee but no daily fees.  The counties that offer work release as an option usually charge daily work release fees.  A work release pay to stay program may not have the same concerns cited by the ACLU because the inmates are being given the opportunity to earn amounts greater than the cost of their stay in jail.     To read more on Ohio criminal sentencing law, click on any of the following links to my other articles related to Ohio criminal sentencing laws: Drug courts; Drug trafficking; No time limit on charging crimes when one flees to avoid prosecution; Ohio legislature reduces felony sentences; Intervention in lieu of conviction; The difference between misdemeanors and felonies in Ohio; Can something be done to keep me out of jail; What is double jeopardy; What jail time credit will be applied; Ohio outlaws debtors’ prison; Can a juvenile court give an adult sentence; What factors affect an agreed sentence.   Attorney Gigiano is an experienced Medina County major felony lawyer in Wadsworth.
