How can they take half the money evertime you put on an inmates books,( for shampoo,deodorant,soap) and still charge them $25.00 a day for being in jail? Sounds to me like the jail is lining their pockets.That money is for the inmates to get the basic stuff they need while they are in jail,because the jail does not furnish this stuff for them.I know this is jail but we all deserve to take a shower.

The inmate probably has fees/fines that you are not aware of. If this is the case then yes, they will take commissary money to pay off this debt...you can check with the jailer. They might give you the information. Also a big thing in jails is for the inmate to tell their loved one... the jail is taking their money.... to get more money out of you. They buy, sell, trade: phone cards, food, cigarettes, etc.

The Kentucky general assembly, your elected leaders, passed a law that allows jails to collect a fee of $25.00 per day from inmates to pay for their housing. This money can be automatically deducted from their accounts.

It does not go towards fines or restitution.

Not only does the jail take half the money deposited into their canteen account, now they have installed a kiosk computer for you to feed your money into, which takes a transaction fee of the top. It's a racket, I know you should not put yourself in that situation inn the first place, but it should not be for greedy people and corporations to exploit.

Yes it does. You are incorrect. If you doubt me, please contact the country attorney of either Mercer or Boyle county and they will tell you the same thing. You may also contact Milward Dedman who, as judge-executive, is part of the jail committee.

In the meantime, I will leave you with this quote. "Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.--W. Clement Stone"

I think instead of calling it the Boyle County Jail they should rename it Harmons Hotel andd put a great big sign up rite above the front door Vacancys any time day or night.I think they are more exspensive than any motel I have ever stayed in.Between the jail and kaps I dont understand how anyone could afford to stay out of jail they all work for each other its all nothing but a big ass rip off

The fees are an effort to help defray the cost of the jail. The costs of running the jail, inmate expenses such as food and medical are a tremendous burden on our counties.

The taxpayers should appreciate the fees. The jail is awfully expensive.

I got an ideal. Why don't they put the inmates in all the jails in Kentucky on chaingangs. Then they can work and make a living and help pay for their cost while they are in jail. I am sure there is alot of things the state needs done. That the inmates could do for it. If you don't work, then you don't eat, shower, etc for that day. You would really have to be sick sick to not have to work a day. Then maybe our jails would not be so full. Let Kentucky try that out and see if it will work.
Then families would not have to put money on your books. You would have your own money on the books.

Brilliant idea! I'm sure that after the injury and wrongful death lawsuits are settled, it would only cost the state and taxpayers several hundreds of millions of dollars.

They need to be in tent cities and eat pbj's like in Arizona. Make jail as crappy as possible of a place to be and that would be a deterrent itself.

you are obviously an idiot. what do you do, ride around watching jails release inmates? by the way, there is no war in the east. the jails are funded by taxpayer $ also, not from individual commissary.

Glad they passed that law. They should have to pay. Why should all us hard working, LAW ABIDING citizens have to pay all for their sorry butts?

Greg. Nutz is right. Other states has self supported prison systems. North Carolina is one of them. They also have chaingangs. There will be inmates that can not get out and work hard physical labor. But there is something that they can do inside the prison. Only about 99.99% of the inmates are lazy and will pitch a bitc*. But I pitch a bitc* because I have to pay for their stay in jail. But it doesn't do me any good. I sure can not sue anyone for it either. There is a difference between being actually mentally and physically not able to work. Then there is plain out lazy and pretend to be disable. Well like I said. In jail and society you have 99.99% that is just plain out old lazy not disabled mentally or physically. Just lazy.
Put their sorry asse* to work and let them pay for their own mistakes not us. Sue the state for What. Them being able to live and not die. Taking care of themselves like the rest of the ones not in jail have to. Come on Greg. People like you is what turned this country inside out now. People like you need to quit trying to interpret the Constitution to mean what you all want it to say. But actually let it stand for what it really saids.

No you're wrong. North Carolina does not have a chain gang. If you can show a news article or reputable website demonstrating that NC currently has a chain gang, please post it and I will apologize.

Kentucky also has a self supporting prison system. Inmates work in the kitchen and perform janitorial work as well as several other positions. However, they cannot work as correctional officers, doctors, nurses, counselors, and so forth and that is where the lion's share of expenses come from (not to mention utilities).

Forcing someone to work in extreme weather does nothing more than invite liability and lawsuits on an already stressed system. Not to mention that due to security concerns, only low level non violent offenders are allowed to work outside the prison.

If you think you can do it better than how they are doing it, please contact LaDonna Thompson, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Corrections at http://corrections.ky.gov/about/Pages/Contact... I am sure that she would love to hear your suggestions.
