Out of the County

This program allows those who are serving time on Ada County charges to serve that time in another county – when ordered by a judge.

Eligibility requirements for the Out of County Program :

  • The Ada County Court has authorized the judgment to serve in another county.
  • The receiving county must have a program and must have available space to take the defendant.


  • A one-time administrative fee $25.00.
  • Any daily fees assessed by another county will be paid to that county.

The ACSO reserves the right to accept or deny an out of county person wishing to serve their sentence in Ada County. Eligibility to serve an out of county sentence in Ada County requires the sentencing court to authorize the judgement – and the ACSO has space available to accommodate the defendant.
