jail therapy
 n.— «Sheriffs complain that Texas parole officers issue “blue warrants” for offenders over technical violations when they have no intention of recommending revocation of the offender to prison. The PO’s slang for this practice is “jail therapy,” i.e, to let the parolee spend a little time in jail to cool off and consider their options.» —“Sheriffs snubbed by blue warrant bail veto” by Scott Henson Grits For Breakfast (Austin, Texas) June 16, 2007.
