Hundreds of Violent Felons in WV Jails Due To Lack of Prison Space
The lack of space in West Virginia’s prisons is leaving dozens of convicted killers and more than 100 sex offenders in the state’s regional jails.
Figures presented to legislators on Monday show that 481 inmates in jails last month should be in prison for violent crimes.
These violent offenders made up close to 27% of the nearly 1,800 inmates who remained in jails last month because the prisons are at capacity.
The violent felons in jail included 65 convicted of homicide, and 124 of a sex offense involving force.
Acting regional jails Chief Joe DeLong said this backlog is making the jails more dangerous.
Lawmakers said West Virginia needs a policy that makes it a priority to move violent felons off the waiting list and into prison.
If you want some seriously harsh punishment, you might want to try a ONE YEAR JAIL SENTENCE handed down by Judge Facemire in Cahoots with a dishonest Gilmer County Court—Imagine Gerry Hough actually paying witnesses to lie on the stand, and then involving the county commission clerk in hiding a piece of property very much part of the court case, and then bringing in an expert state witness that is certainly no expert at all, but someone doing Hough a “Favor,“ by LYING about the value of old rusted used farm equipment that sat outside in the elements for 24 years - But Gilmer County presents it as BRAND NEW with a brand new retail price testified to by Chief Deputy Gerwig.
It is all a LIE, while you watch your job, career, home and three cars taken from you, all from jail. And to make matters worse one your cars is stolen by a state witness against you and they profit from an expensive car that was yours.
YES CRJ is beyond a nightmare, but what is worse is the very dishonest people that make it all possible down at the Gilmer County Courthouse.
The air is recycled and YOU WILL BE SICK for a long time after you get out. STAPH infections, lung infections, skin diseases, and worse are all at CRJ waiting for you!
