who will do something about this? It would have to be someone from outside RC to get anything done.

It was on the radio. 4 people put on leave. Sounds like it is a lot more then one person "stiring" up trouble.

Radio said 4 being investigated were enjoying an administartive leave "paid vacation" courtesy of taxpayers! And how does city attorney little DeHart investigating crimes on big daddy mayors watch work? Isn't this a huge conflict of interest or just more Russell county business as usual?

Just to make this clear nobody is stirring up trouble... Right is right and wrong is wrong...To my knowledge as of yesterday I am the only one who had reported any of these allegations. Once I brought this information to the authorities last week and not seeing anything being done about it I began to start calling other agencies outside of Russell Springs. I did speak to a gentleman (not saying his name at this time) yesterday afternoon that assured me they had contacted an outside investigation agency that would be in town sometime this week to start an investigation. He also advised me that the four employees had been suspended as of yesterday. The gentleman I spoke to gave me his word that this would be investigated and action would be taken. I was raised that a man is as good as his word. We will see… I have already turned over some evidence that clearly shows my allegations are true. If nothing has been done as of Friday afternoon I will start releasing videos and text messages. Please remember these two women that were engaging in activities with the inmate have families and children. I do not in any way wish to humiliate their families because of their lack of character. I am sure the names are out by now anyway being Russell Springs is a small town.

Inamates walked the halls of courthouse like they owned the place, smoked cigerttes and I always wondered if whenever they went into bathroom did someone hide pills for them? Work release can be a good thing but more oversight would be required.They need to work not go from office to office and BS.

Actually when the inmates are on work release the person who signs them out and who they work for has sole responsibility for them. The jailer or jail staff isn't liable for them at that point. The problem is with the people they were woking for. The jailer doesn't dictate which inmates can go out and work. That is a classification that the state or county attorney puts upon them. Not everyone is able to be put on work release. The folks who work for the city are adults. They made bad decisions. Not the jail staff

You are very brave to come out and be a concerned citizen in this unfortunate incident. At this point be very careful to who and what you say about this incident. Above all else maintain a secure chain of custody of your original information and evidence and never ever turn loose of any original material, release only notarized copies to any official investigator.

This junk is nothing new ,Maybe the sex thing but the other perks are just another case of corruption thats been around along time .We as tax payers need to know who said what, done what,issued what ,Done who ,Because WE are there employer .Not the other way around.

Not sure where you are getting your information, but this is completely false. Department of Corrections (DOC) classifies the inmates. The classification levels are 1, 2, and 3. Inmates have to be a level 1 to go outside and work and level 2 to work inside the jail and level 3 is not permitted to work. THE JAILER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OVERSEEING THAT ALL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES ARE FOLLOWED both inside and outside the jail. In order to have a work release program the jail must be a Class D Facility. So yes Richard is an adult and I guess in the eyes of Russell Springs was responsible for them. But.. Richard is not a sworn officer of the law (deputies are), he has not been trained in supervising inmates. Sounds like to me you may work at the jail? My point to this is you clearly have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to policy and procedure in a jail and a deputy should be with inmates AT ALL TIMES. Example: In the event an inmate becomes ill and is hospitalized it is not the nurses and doctors responsible for that inmate during their stay. A deputy is with them at all times.

The citizens of Russell County (well, most of them) thank you for bringing this out. Wish there were more like you.

It's a good thing some people decide to stand up for something rather than bend and fall for anything.

OH FOR SURE, RIGHT?
And while we're all on that subject it might be prudent to point out that just as the school board threads have progressed thus far, so is this one.
Odd, wouldn't you say? BEINGS AS WE HAVE THE SAME PERSON POSTING OVER AND OVER WHILE USING A DIFFERENT NAME SO THEY CAN KEEP THE STRING ALIVE!!!!!
ROFLMFAO!
DO YOU HONESTLY THINK WE'RE ALL IGNORANT AS HELL? OR IS IT JUST YOU BEING THE IGNORANT ONE BY UNDERESTIMATING YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS?
WHAT A CONUNDRUM!

And are you stupid enough to think that only one person cares about this subject? Everyone in the county and especially RS is interested in this. Government workers in this county need to start paying for their wrong doings at tax payers expense. I am not sure of wrong doing in this case, I just want it to be investigated by the state police and others not involved in city or county government.

It's people like these morons posting "nobody cares, it's just gossip and so on." These are the type of people that sit on their a** and live off the state.... Don't try to deny it either because if you did work for a living and paid taxes you would understand why people are upset. Furthermore it is also people like you that allow these type of things to happen, your lack of morals and education makes me sick... Now with that being said its not gossip and Russell Springs is fixing to see even more brought to light.
