    According to a definition used by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics in its report, Prison and Jail Inmates at Midyear, jails are locally-operated correctional facilities that confine persons before or after adjudication. Inmates sentenced to jail usually have a sentence of 1 year or less. (This can vary by state.) Jails also incarcerate persons in a variety of other categories, such as persons being held pending arraignment, trial, conviction, or sentencing; those who have been returned to custody following violation of the terms of their release on probation or parole; and persons being transferred to the custody of other criminal justice/correctional authorities. Prisons are operated by either a state or the federal government, and they confine only those individuals who have been sentenced to 1 year or more of incarceration. Generally, persons sentenced to prison have been convicted of a felony offense.

    大略做個重點概述

    Jail:地方性,囚犯被送到jail的判刑通常在一年以下,被關的人類形很廣,如可能假釋犯、審判中、或傳訊中的都有可能,而犯人可能還會被送到一些特定的感化中心或是審判中心

    Prison:聯邦性,囚犯被送到prison的判刑通常在一年以上,通常會是重罪才會被審判到Prison

    Jail(n.)---“監獄”。英國的拼法為goal。在英國指民事監獄,在美國指收容犯有輕罪的人或未經判決的人的收容所、看守所等,現在也指監獄。Prison(n.)---“監獄”。指大型的監獄。是指監禁判刑的罪犯、等待受審的嫌疑犯、俘虜等的地方。
