  1. Best answer

    The website www.sdsheriff.net is usually accurate, so if you checked that and it is showing he is not in custody, you may want to call the jail directly. Additionally, he may have bailed out without you knowing, or he may have been released without having to post any bail.

  2. Try SDSheriff.net or call the jail and ask.

  3. Mr. Shapiro's advice is best. I would only add that he could have been booked and released. The question then becomes why hasn't he called you?


  4. In some minor cases a person may be released on their own recognisance without having to post bond. Once the person is released there's no way of knowing where they are.
