Prison's overview

The Deuel County Jail has a long and storied history. The jail is named for Deputy Sheriff George Deuel, who was shot and killed on duty in 1887. The facility has inmates that are serving sentences for all types of crimes ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. It's important to note that most people who end up incarcerated here have not yet been convicted of their crime, so they're still innocent until proven guilty by a court sentence or plea bargain agreement with prosecutors Inmates sentenced to serve less than one year will spend their time in confinement within this prison before being released back into society after completing their sentence term (typically six months). However, if you get longer sentences, you will be incarcerated for the duration of your sentence and then transferred to a different prison facility to serve the remainder.
