You'll serve in the county of conviction, unless you pay the daily rental price to serve in another county or a private jail, all with permission from the convicting county.

You should be ordered to serve your time in the county where you received your conviction. Some counties in the Bay area are transferring probations to the county where probationer lives.

Good luck,

Elena
