Nerds On Site is proud to be a part of the 2011 Jail and Bail event being held this year in Port Huron, Michigan, U.S.A!
Prisoners are charged with a “crime” (Guilty of Kindness, Guilty of Doing Good for Babies, etc), and arraigned in front of the judge, and the bail is set. They raise bail money by contacting friends, family and acquaintances and having them pledge dollars to keep you in, or get you out of jail.

The event boasts that it is has always been the largest Jail & Bail event in the nation.
