Problems Continue At Coffee County Jail
As of Tuesday there were some 289 inmates in the Coffee County Jail which was designed to house 196 inmates.
During a tour of the county lockup Wednesday, Tullahoma News and WHMT Radio reporter Wayne Thomas saw that there were 30 inmates housed in cells designed to house only 16 inmates.
Prisoners were having to sleep on the floor and having to step over sleeping inmates to move around.
Meanwhile, the Coffee County Commission’s Jail Review Committee is still working on plans for a new jail.
