  • Jail update: Federal prisoner program struggling

    LaRue County Detention Center is one of several detention facilities across the state that are bracing for the financial strains of House Bill 463.
    HB 463, a bill aimed at reducing prison sentences for low-risk, non-violent drug offenders, went into effect last month.
    The reductions in prison populations are estimated to save the state $40 million annually, but in return will strain the small budgets of local governments. County Judge-Executive Tommy Turner estimated in March that the potential reduction in funding would equal a $750,000 deficit to the jail.
