Lafayette County, WI Jail Release

Having a loved one in jail can be very stressful for all involved. However, much of that stress can be alleviated when you know that you are working with an experienced attorney who can guide you and the defendant out of jail and through the legal process quickly and efficiently.

If you have a loved one in Lafayette County Jail, the first thing on your mind is probably how to visit the defendant and how to get him or her released as soon as possible.

Visiting an Inmate in Lafayette County Jail

If you need to contact the Lafayette County Jail or visit an inmate that is currently incarcerated there, you can call (608) 776-4870 to reach the sheriff’s office 24 hours a day. Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department is located at 138 W. Catherine St. in Darlington, Wisconsin.

How to Get Out of Lafayette County Jail

Once the defendant has gone through the booking process, he or she will be set bail. This amount is what must be paid off before the defendant can be released from jail. Because Wisconsin does not allow a for-profit bail bond industry, you are not able to go through a bondsman to pay the bail. However, there are a few other options, such as:

  • 10 percent surety bond – An adult 21 or older pays 10 percent of the bail amount
  • Cash bond – The total bail amount is paid in cash
  • Signature bond – The defendant signs a document promising to pay the bail amount if he or she does not return for the scheduled court date
  • Release on recognizance – Typically only available to first-time offenders of non-violent misdemeanors, bail is not set, but documents must be signed promising to return to court
