As expected, the Lubbock County Jail will be forced to house some inmates in Hale County. On Monday, Lubbock County Commissioners approved a contract to send some inmates to Hale County to relieve overcrowding at the Lubbock County Jail.
We first told you about the problem last week, when the county had to offer some inmates early release because of overcrowding. Hale County is offering 25 to 30 beds for one year at $38 per day, per inmate.
