Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?
