As the Coffee County commission’s jail committee continues to work to get a new county jail, Sheriff Steve Graves continues to work on what to do about overcrowding. Yesterday morning the jail which was designed to house 196 inmates had 307 occupants. The sheriff stated that this was not the first time the jail has housed this many, as there were over 300 inmates over the weekend.
