Default Weekend Jail Time

I was wondering if anyone could help me out understanding exactly how "weekend jail time" is served?

Normal procedure, as I understand it, is for the offender to turn him/herself in at the jail by a certain time on a certain day and be released on a certain day - example: turn self in on Friday, released on Sunday for as many weekends as it takes to complete the sentence. I have heard of "weekenders" doing their off days in jail through the week if that's their work schedule. I'm in KY, so I'm guessing that its somewhat same in NJ.

Welcome to PTO
Sorry I wasn't able to respond sooner. I haven't been on much the last few days. As far as I know weekend jail time is served this way where I live as well. I'd guess it's the same for NJ. I will move your thread to the county jail section of our forum. Hopefully someone will see it that has had experience with weekend jail time in your state. Welcome to Prison Talk. I am glad you found us when you needed us.
