Branch County Jail full again this weekend

COLDWATER, MI WTVB) - The Branch County jail begins this second weekend in May at full capacity with 142 inmates locked up at the facility at the end of the day Friday. Yesterday, 14 people, including 3 women, were booked into the jail.

The last time jail was this crowded was about a month ago on April ninth when the number of prisoners was 143, including 31 female inmates. The number of women behind bars right now is down just a bit with 26 female inmates as of Friday. But that is still twice as many as the former medical care facility was redesigned to hold. Plans to address the female overcrowding problem remain under discussion by county officials.
