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?

We started receiving annoying harassing emails (not

We started receiving annoying harassing emails (not threatening) from an unknown email account. We have later determined that someone may have been attempting to get us into trouble making emails look like they are originating from us or something like that. I am not overly tech savvy, but some tech friends explained spoofing and other things to us. What is the likelyhood we need to seek a local attorney. Will law enforcement put much effort into this nonsense since they are not threatening if they are turned over to police? We have nothing to do with this, but after our tech friends talked to us we are concerned someone could make it appear they are from us. Please ask further questions if needed.
