Booking Fee Reimbursement

About Booking Fees
The McLeod County Jail collects a $10 booking fee from each person held for confinement.  This is authorized by the McLeod County Board of Commissioners per Minnesota Statute 641.12, sub 1.  Booking fees will not be collected on out of county warrant inmates, juvenile inmates, writs, or DOC parole violators.

Reimbursement Eligibility
A person may request to have their booking fee reimbursed if all charges are dismissed at court or they are acquitted on all charges.  If there are no outstanding charges on the inmate’s account from prior booking fees, you will receive your booking fee reimbursement.

Proof for Reimbursement
It is up to the individual to provide proof from court administration that the charges were dismissed or you have been acquitted.

Requesting Reimbursement
If you believe you are entitled to a booking fee reimbursement, call the jail phone number at 320-864-5191 and ask to speak with a sergeant.
