Huber & Work Release Rules & Information: 

A dedicated drunk driving or criminal defense attorney's work does not stop at sentencing. Attorney Skarie will assist you with preparing for and navigating the intricacies of Fond du Lac County's Huber (work release) and Electronic Monitoring programs.

Huber Packet:


After sentencing, the court will order you to complete the “Jail Information Packet” immediately and deposit it into the box by the Clerk of Court, 2nd floor of the City/County Building, 160 S. Macy Street. When the jail receives the Judgment of Conviction (JOC) from the court, the jail will contact you to schedule a report-in date, which will be within 60 days from the time of sentencing unless otherwise ordered by the judge.
