My daughter was convicted in Genesee County and ordered to jail. The Genesee County Jail has the release date but has not notified the jail where she is being held (Genesee County does not house female inmates). Are they required to notify the holding Jail so that good time can be computed for the inmate.
If your daughter had a lawyer for the case/trial this question would be best answered by that attorney, not a public message service. Contact her attorney or have her contact her attorney to clarify the details for your area.
When a person is sent tojail, they go along with commitment papers which inform the jail of the release date. If you believe that did not happen, contact the defense attorney or the sentencing court.
Any response I provide is meant as a general view on the subject and is no way intended to be specific legal advice to any individual. If you wish specific advice, you should hire and consult with an attorney of your choosing.
I'm sure the jail will know when to release her.
