Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Jasper County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Newton Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement.

  • You can mail whites in for an inmate but they must follow the guidelines of acceptable property for an inmate.
  • Do not mail hygiene items as they will not be allowed to have them. Hygiene must be purchased from the jail.

Inmate Phone Time

The inmate phone system works on prepaid time or collect calls, we no longer us phone cards.

  • Inmates can use the money on their commissary to make phone calls. The calls are then directly deducted from the inmate's commissary account at a rate of approx. $0.22 per minute. Some taxes and fees may increase this per-minute fee.
  • Family and friends can go the ICS website and set up an account that will allow an inmate to call one phone number on a prepaid account.
  • Family and friends can accept collect calls when the inmate calls them. This feature would work just like any collect call, the family or friend would then be charged that bill
  • Money can be put on an inmates books by dropping off cash at the jail window or mailing in a money order or bank draft check made out to the inmate.

Bonding Information

No Bond

If an inmate has one or more charges set as ‘no bond’ then they are not allowed to post any type of bond and will remain in jail until their court is finished or the judge changes the bonding requirements.

Cash or Surety Bond

If an inmate has cash or surety bond it may be posted either in cash, cashier’s check/money order or through a bonding company. The jail will not take collateral for a bond, you will need to use a bonding company if you want to do this.

Cash Only

These bonds require the money to be posted in cash or cashier’s check/money order only. There are some bonding companies that will post a cash bond but normally require a higher percentage fee to do so.

  • If a bond is posted in cash and the inmate makes all of their court dates then the bond will be returned to the person who posted it once the case is over.
  • If a bond is posted using a bonding company you will not get any money back. The money charged by the bonding company is their fee for ensuring the bond.
  • If the person posting a cash bond has outstanding fees, fines, etc. registered with the Clerk of Court then the bond money may be put toward this outstanding debt before any money is returned. You can contact the Jasper County Clerk of Court at 641-792-9161 if you have questions about any outstanding debt.
