What is considered a full day served of jail time?

I have to do 4 days in jail and I was wondering what time I should turn myself in because I dont want to go mad early in the morning if i could have gone in at like 6 pm and had it count as a day. Anybody know the cutoff?

Most (but certainly not all) states require that you be inside the jail by the Noon head count for it to count as a day. Others actually count the hours. I suggest you call the jail yourself instead of asking people on Yahoo who don't know.

In the local county jail they give you credit for any day (even partial) that you are in jail. So if you turned yourself in at 10PM - as long as you were booked in before midnight - that would count as a full day in jail. Then the next two days, obviously you would be there a full 24 hours. On the final day you would probably be out by noon (depending on how busy) and get credit for a full day also. Let's say that you turned yourself in right before a snow storm. You would be using your time wisely since you wouldn't really be able to get out in the snow. Also, in my observations, less criminals are arrested during snow storms as they are too lazy to get out in the bad weather. So you would have less criminals to deal with when you were in jail. but call the jail first to make sure they have the same rules as mine.

usually when you serve a sentence its the full 24 hours a day.in my jail though they will let you out at 5 or 6 in the morning because they dont want to feed you or keep track of you the whole day.the courts would have told you what time you turn yourself in so i wont suggest a time for you.12-3pm i would turn myself in.6 hour less time in jail


thirty ot six
the sooner u turn yourself in the sooner you get out

It will be 96 hours but I would go in the morning because if you go in in the evening they may not have sufficient staff to process your release and you may have to stay another night!
