Floridas Brevard County Jail
Have you, or has someone you are concerned for been sentenced to time in jail?
The Brevard County Jail has been around since 1976, housing individuals who have been sentenced to one year or less. We have been able to contact many ex-inmates and ask them about their own encounters with everyday life in jail, with the hopes that the information herein will give you an idea of what to expect.
Their experiences are recent, and the information is precise and useful; it is our hope and purpose to provide clarity about what you can expect for yourself or your loved one, giving you some comfort in the process.
