Brown County Jail Lawsuit

The Brown County sheriff and the county jail are being sued. After years of haggling about if a new jail should be built and where, a lawsuit may finally force Brown County to resolve the problem of a very overcrowded, very out-of-date facility. While Brown County officials aren’t pleased to be sued, they are hopeful this might finally get something done. View the Indiana Department of Corrections 2001 Jail Report.

Their thoughts a year after they walked away virtually without a scratch from an area where so many died. Visit the Crane NSWC web site.
