Pay For Stay:

The Minnesota Legislative session of 2001/2002 passed a law that allows County Boards to authorize County Jails to collect room, board, and other related correctional expenses for offenders who have been convicted of a crime and confined in a County Jail. Minnesota State Statute 641.12, Subd. 3 allows for the collection of these charges/fees.  All convicted inmates will pay $20.00 per day, to include credited days. An invoice will be mailed to or sent along with the inmate at the time of release for any unpaid balance. The inmate will be responsible to either pay in full the amount due within 30 days or arrange payments within 30 days of release from custody. If you wish to request a waiver of Pay for Stay fees you may do so, but it must be in writing.  You must write the Sheriff or Jail Administrator within 5 days of your release from incarceration after receiving your Pay for Stay invoice.  You must list the reasons why you are seeking a waiver for the Pay for Stay fees applied. As long as payment arrangements have been made and payments are being received the account will remain active until paid. If, after 30 days from release of custody, no payments have been made, in part or in full, and/or the inmate has not contacted the Facility Administrator at # (507) 537-7666 or 611 West Main Street Marshall, MN 56258, to arrange for payments to be made, the account will be turned over to a collection agency for collection.

Work Release, Education Release, STS, etc...

Between the hours of 8:00 and 4:30 bail is to be posted at the Court Administrator’s office on the 3rd floor of the courthouse.

The Roles of Jails in Communities:


  • Jails have a far greater significance in our communities than most of us realize. They are a primary responsibility for local governments. They are a critical component of the criminal justice system and they play an integral role in providing safety and security in our communities.  When a community recognizes the importance of its local operation and supports the Jail operation with adequate resources the community as a whole will benefit.
    Jails receive newly arrested people directly from the street, amongst others. Many are in a state of physical or mental crisis when they enter a Jail. They may be angry, afraid, intoxicated, and/or ill. Jails cannot choose whom they will accept. Ultimately a facility will take all arrestees brought to their door no matter what their condition, attitude, or frame of mind.
    Contrary to common belief Jails are much different than prisons.
  • Jails receive and process people immediately after they are arrested for a crime.
  • Jails hold people in pre-trial detention; not as punishment, but instead to ensure their appearance in court if bail is not posted or if bail is not obtainable for the crime committed.
  • Jails incarcerate people who have been convicted of misdemeanor and felony offenses for up to one-(1) year.
  • Jails hold people when they have been sentenced to State prisons and are awaiting transfer when they violate probation or parole and when they are being detained for other jurisdictions.
  • But most importantly, Jails are operated and financed at the local level with local tax dollars. They are significant legal and financial responsibility for communities.
  • Prisons on the other hand incarcerate only those people who have been tried and convicted of serious felony crimes and sentenced to long terms of incarceration. Also, prisons are run by state or federal agencies using state or federal funds. So, compared to prisons Jails handle a much wider spectrum of offenders, and for shorter less predictable stays.


The “Prison Rape Elimination Act” of 2003 (PREA) is a federal mandate that prohibits and seeks to eliminate sexual abuse and sexual harassment in correctional institutions. 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has zero tolerance toward all forms of sexual abuse and sexual harassment (28 CFR 115.111).  The office will not tolerate retaliation against any person who reports sexual abuse or sexual harassment or who cooperates with a sexual abuse or sexual harassment investigation. 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office will take immediate action to protect prisoners who are reasonably believed to be subject to a substantial risk of imminent sexual abuse (28 CFR 115.162). 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office will investigate any criminal allegations.  Any person may report any allegation on behalf of any inmate to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office at (507) 537-7668 or to New Horizons Crisis Center at (507) 532-5764 or (800) 881-7493.

Inmates may report sexual abuse and harassment incidents anonymously or to any staff member they choose.  Staff shall accommodate all inmate requests to report allegations of sexual abuse or harassment.  Staff shall accept reports made verbally, in writing, or through the “Turnkey” kiosk, anonymously or from third parties and shall promptly document all verbal reports. 

Inmates who have consensual sexual contact with another inmate may be disciplined.

Inmates who have non-consensual sexual contact with another inmate shall be disciplined and/or criminally prosecuted. 

Falsely reporting a sexual abuse incident will not be tolerated and will result in discipline and/or criminal prosecution.
