LOGANSPORT, INDIANA — For each inmate on in-home detention, work release or probation, Cass County earns money.
Inmates sentenced to work release are responsible for paying $18 each day of their sentence, while the county is reimbursed $15 to $25 dollars for other inmates in the Community Transition Program. Dave Wegner, director of Cass-Pulaski Community Corrections said most inmates are able to meet the payment schedule; however, judges say the county and state are owed fees from unpaid court expenses.
In the Community Transition Program, inmates sentenced to jail time for felony convictions are able to go on work release a specified time period before their early release date. The Indiana Department of Corrections pays the corrections center $15 for class D felons, $20 for class C felons and $25 for class A and B felons.
The inmates themselves are expected to pay $5 each day they’re on work release through the transition program
