What is the difference between jail and prison?

Jails are typically run by the county’s sheriff department, and are most often used for temporary holdings, shorter sentences, and less serious offenses. Prisons are either state or federally run, and usually hold inmates facing very long sentences and who are convicted of very serious criminal offenses. While jail sentences rarely exceed one or two years, prison sentences can last for any length of time.
