There are a handful of inmates in the facility that are serving out their sentence. Inmates who are serving out their sentence will have a sentence of two years or less. If an inmate is sentenced to a sentence for more than two years, they will be transferred to state prison.
An inmate in the Scott County Jail will have the opportunity to become a trusted inmate. A trusted inmate will be offered a position inside the facility.
