Sentence to Service (STS)

The Crow Wing County Sentence To Service (STS) Program is run by the Minnesota Department of Corrections.

If you qualify and are interested in STS, print out a packet (PDF) or pick 1 up at the front desk of the jail. Complete it and bring it with you on your report date, mail it, or deliver it to the Crow Wing County Jail.

Priot to starting the STS program, you are required to pay the $25 booking fee, $5 card fee, and $40 for a drug screen. You will not be allowed to start the program unless/until your test results are negative. All base fines, other delinquent fines, and pay for stay fees must be worked off or paid in full before you are allowed to work off jail time. You will work off all base fines at a rate of $6 per hour and pay for stay at a rate of $50 per day, based on a full day on STS.
