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?

Would racial profiling apply here? The officer made no

Would racial profiling apply here?The officer made no mention, and they were already following the civilian. Also the officer admitted that both him and his partner were suppose to be about 2-3 blocks from the stop, because they were part of a Task Force brought to the area to help out with car robberies. Potential car robbery is the reason the officer and his partner gave for conducting the stop, and having looked at the officer when they were intentionally pursuing the civilian was not stated.

Can I rescind bail without any negative consequences?

I bailed my son out of jail a month ago in NJ. I am trying to find out if I can rescind his bail without causing any negative consequences for him. He rather wait in jail for trial so that he can get time off for time served when he is sentenced.My son has autism but because he is an adult, I cannot advocate against his wishes. He rather go back to jail rather than get treatment outside while on bail.

Person not indited in 90 days. Can parole hold be lifted?

My husband was arrested on May 17th for a DWI at the Cooke County jail in Texas. He is currently in jail still,, with a parole hold, but has not been indited yet. Its been almost 90 days. If they don't indite him by the 90 days, can that parole hold be lifted? Can my husband get out on a PR bond?He has a court appointed lawyer. She says she has nothing to do with parole, and that since it's a felony DWI, he will get 25 to life. I don't think that sounds right, and he has cell mates getting released off of their parole holds.

If Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and

If John Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and only because he gets scared, he does all of the following: Resists arrest and hits a police officer, when in jail, knocks a guard unconscious and escapes from jail, when in court after being recaptured, he knocks a bailiff unconscious and runs out of court and escapes, when recaptured, he knocks a guard unconscious and escapes jail again this time stealing a car to do so and leaving it abandoned in a vacant lot undamaged, when recaptured and in court again, it is discovered that he is innocent after all. Will all the assaults, escapes, and the grand theft auto and stuff be forgotten about because John Doe should never have been arrested in the first place because he was innocent and it was the error of the law, or would he still have to pay for those charges? (For the states of Texas and Indiana) Thank you.
