Sorry, can't answer because it depends on all the facts and circumstances. Generally, a jail has broad discretion in the handling of prisoners and the courts do not get involved.

If you would like to contact me personally by either phone or email, you may do so as follows: Patrick Johnson, Johnson, Scruggs & Barfield, 95 White Bridge Road, S. 508, Nashville, Tennessee, 37205, email:; Cell: 615-646-9417; Office: 615-352-8326
