Huber is a privilege that allows an inmate to go to work while they are
incarcerated. The judge must grant Huber and then the jail will verify
the employment and determine whether all requirements are met. The fact
that Huber has been granted does not guarantee that you will be allowed
out to work.
Offenders that have been granted Huber / Work Release must meet with the
jail programmer prior to starting their jail time. It is strongly
recommended that you make contact immediately following your court
hearing to begin the process. You will not be allowed out on release
until the proper paperwork has been completed and the job has been
verified. You may contact the jail programmer Monday through Thursday
between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at 507-934-7112.

site while out on Huber. You must bring all necessary clothes with you.
