The Muscular Dystrophy Association brings "Jail and Bail" back to Janesville.

The Texas Roadhouse Restaurant was converted into a temporary "jail" Tuesday for the traditional fundraiser asking community leaders to raise "bail" by asking friends and collegues for donations. Southwestern Wisconsin MDA Fundraising Coordinator Molly Swanson says "inmates" were handcuffed, dressed in a striped shirt, and given a mug shot. These jail conditions aren't typical however with gourmet coffee and fresh pastry available. It's been two years since MDA had a "Jail and Bail" in Janesville.

The effort is expected to raise close to $30,000.
