Bailifs will normally hold someone in jail for one day per gp of fine they are unable to pay. It is not unheard of though for bailifs to hold people for up to five that length when they are also getting labor from the prisoners. Victims and their families have been known to also pay bailifs to hold people far beyond the time they should have been released. This type of corruption isn't seen often in the larger prisons of vast kingdoms but is common in small town and city jails.
