COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - There may be no getting around it this time. The Branch County Jail is looking at its second official overcrowding emergency of 2014. They’re just a day away from needing to inform the court system that they’ve reached the limit of 7 straight days of being overcrowded. Today started with 152 inmates while the rated capacity for the outdated facility is 142 prisoners. 27 people were booked into the jail from Friday through yesterday. 

An overcrowding emergency in February resulted in sentence reductions and the early release of 13 prisoners. A similar situation was barely averted at the end of March.
