Jefferson County, WI Jail Release

If you have a loved one in Jefferson County Jail, it is important to understand that you are not alone during this confusing and stressful time. Your attorney will work hard to make sure that your loved one is released as quickly as possible and will guide both of you through the rest of the legal process.

How to Get Released from Jefferson County Jail

Once someone is booked into jail, they will be set bail. It is important to understand how bail works in order to get your loved one released. Wisconsin is unique in that is does not have a for-profit bail bond industry. This means that instead of going through a bondsman, you will need to make bail in another way. For example:

  • Cash bonds – this bond allows you to pay the total bail amount in cash.
  • Signature bond – signed by the defendant, this bond does not have to be paid unless the defendant doesn’t show up in court.
  • 10 percent surety bond – this bond allows a loved one who is 21 or older to pay for 10 percent of the total bail amount, which can be returned once the defendant makes his or her court appearances.
  • Release on recognizance – this is not a bond, because in this situation bail is not set. The defendant simply has to sign a document saying that he or she will attend court. This option is only offered to those with no prior crimes charged with a non-violent misdemeanor.
