A: Unless your charge that you are on probation for is a violent or serious Felony or a Sex crime, as of November 1, 2019, the LA Sheriff is booking and releasing defendants with 180 days or less sentences! It is NOT a guarantee, but that is what my clients have been telling me as well as the Sheriffs deputies at the jail. Try to have an IRC self-surrender on a Friday to increase the likelihood of getting released immediately.

Good luck!
