Most accurately, the two functions of jails are

▸ detaining persons awaiting trial and punishing convicted persons awaiting sentencing.

▸ providing short-term confinement for misdemeanants and long-term confinement for felons.

▸ providing short term confinement for non-felon convictions and detaining persons awaiting trial, sentencing, or transfer.

▸ detaining persons awaiting trial and holding persons awaiting execution.
