Is there any technical/legal distinction in Hebrew between jail and prison, like there is in English? (Jails are operated by counties and can hold anyone who's been arrested/charged, even if they're awaiting trial and haven't been proven guilty yet. Prisons are state/federal level and only hold those already convicted.)
