Inmate Releases require complete paperwork from the courts. Paperwork from the courts is often received around 5:00 pm most days.
Unfortunately, Inmates may become aware of their pending release before the Morgan County Jail receives the paperwork to begin the release process. This can cause an unnecessary wait time for those that are picking them up from the jail.
Releases can take up to 5 hours to be processed for various reasons: additional arrests to be processed, warrant checks, inmate-related issues, headcount, facility lockdowns, etc
Our goal is to release inmates as soon as possible once the paperwork has been received and processed.
