When does a prisoner get out?

Discharge from jail and prison are similar, but there are differences as well. Generally, discharge from each depends on sentening. Jail incarceration can be of two types however: pre and post adjudication. Some pretrial defendants may be housed in jail, especially those who do not or cannot make bail. Some defendants are held over for trial due to the severity of the crime or a potential flight risk.

Release from prison is most commonly of two types: dischard (completion of sentenced time), or parole (conditional release with continued supervision). There are a number of other reasons for release from prison, but generally these would be predicated by court orders.
