When the judge releases an inmate, there is more involved than just his word. There is still the need for the paper trail for proof of what took place. The paper trail can take some time. All the while your inmate is being processed, chances are several others are, also. They also want to leave ASAP. At the same time, all the other functions for those inmates who remain in jail have to continue. Meals have to served, medications given and so on. Typically, court adjourns around the same time that daily visitation begins which means not only are inmates being booked out, but families are also crowding the lobby to see their loved ones. There is no provision to call in extra officers when all the extra duties occur.
