The jail intake process at the Carbon County Jail is made up of each of these steps:
You will get put in a holding cell. If there are a lot of arrests, it will take a while to get processed.
First you will have to answer a number of questions, such as what is your full name, your address, birth date and an emergency contact, and you will also be asked about your psychological and medical history. Next, you’ll be given an inmate number and you will get fingerprinted. Then, all of your personal property will be taken from you and will be stored until you are released.
They will allow you to make a telephone call to get in touch with a family member, friend, or loved-on.
If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you will be allowed to skip the jumpsuit and keep wearing your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you you will be given a jumpsuit.
When you post bail, you will get discharged from jail. This process may take between 30 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get released. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if a magistrate needs to decide on how much your bail will be.

When you get to the end of your sentence and know the release date, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
