The Coffee County Grand Jury met Tuesday to review 87 cases, and Sheriff Steve Graves is concerned about where he will incarcerate anyone who might be named in sealed indictments.
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.
