South Texas sheriff says some inmates moved for jail compliance
from The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
A South Texas sheriff says federal prisoners are being moved from the county jail to help the lockup comply with rules on how long other inmates can be in holding cells. Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin on Wednesday said he’s following the recommendation of the Texas Commission on Jail Standards. The jail in Corpus Christi was inspected in March and found to be non-compliant, with state inmates routinely held in intake cells past the 48-hour limit.
