New Jail Serves as Hostel For the Night

jail02A prisoner transport passing through Hopkins County profited from the new accommodations at the Hopkins County jail. Approximately 13 were housed overnight locally Thursday night. The prisoner transport vehicle broke down in the county. With a jail capacity of 192, the additional prisoners did not move the facility toward non-compliance with jail standards. Numbers had been an issue with the old jail building.

The hosted prisioners moved on toward their destination Friday.
