Crowding forces some Pennsylvania jail inmates to sleep on cots in gym
Six Westmoreland County, Pa., jail inmates are bunking on cots in the women's indoor gym because some prisoners must be kept alone in cells, Sheriff Jonathan Held said. The jail can typically accommodate 100 women, but officials had to dedicate some double-occupancy cells to inmates with disciplinary problems or those on suicide watch, pushing six inmates out of cells and onto the gym cots.
