Work Release
If you have the option to serve your time in the work release section of the jail, you can consider yourself lucky. In this area, former inmates report that you can keep whatever hours you want. The Correctional Officers (CO's) only come and count inmates twice a day.

The rest of the time inmates are free to do what they want, as long as they stay out of trouble. Most of the work release inmates work 12 hours a day, but some inmates are housed in work release 24/7 (without going to work).

Passing the Time
Boredom is a major problem for many inmates as they serve their time. St. Charles County provides inmates with some forms of recreation to help them pass the time, but the best of these facilities are available only to inmates in work release. In work release, inmates control the TV, and there are lots of books and magazines to read. In work release, there are also puzzles and tables for them, in addition to lots of space to exercise.

St. Charles County serves inmates three meals per day. Unfortunately, the food isn't rated very highly. The "splatter patty" and ham and beans are the only foods described as "the only things I'd call food" by one inmate. Inmates can also order snacks from commissary if they have money available on their accounts.
