My inmate is in a county jail awaiting sentencing (he has a bond but I cant afford it) Can he get work release to obtain a job in the town the jail is located?

This is highly unlikely unless the county jail has a work release program (not all do); but given the fact that he is "awaiting sentencing" might preclude his participation in a work release program. The fear is that while not yet in his final designation, he might be tempted to walk away... and for that reason we doubt there would be that option for him at this time.
