Work release is a program where those who are convicted of a DUI charge may be released to go to work then return to jail at the end of the day. This opportunity allows those charged with a DUI to work to support themselves, their family and pay back the fees and penalties associated with their charge.
Things that Matter:
- Work release may not be available to everyone charged with a DUI.
- The guidelines, conditions and restrictions associated with these programs are extremely strict and closely monitored.
- Exit and re-entry processes take time and are very regulated, plan accordingly.
- There is usually a fee associated with the work release in addition to jail fees.
Make sure you are back to jail on time and have very reliable transportation in place, the consequences of being past your curfew could worsen your situation.
