Who will be housed there?

Pre-trial offenders can be any class. Sentenced felons go to state prison. Sentenced misdemeanor offenders might go to jail or one of our many alternative programs, which are overseen by the court system. All of these decisions are totally reliant on the Judicial Officers and legal guidance. 

We do hold people who are wanted in another county if they have committed a crime here and are arrested here. They must go through proper protocols in Allen County and are then transferred to the other county.
