COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The Branch County jail was jammed again over the weekend with 33 bookings since Friday. The prisoner population peaked yesterday at 149. The rated inmate capacity is 142. The overcrowding prompted the early release last month of 13 prisoners, who were given sentence reductions.

Seven straight days of overcrowding will prompt the courts to declare another jail emergency and more release orders. This is day four and counting.
