My husband was just arrested last night in the county we live in and was taken to the jail.They got him for failure to appear.His court date is July 13th,which is almost 3 weeks away.I thought that the court hearing is within 10days of being arrested.He dont have a bond either.The failure to appear is a crazy charge because we went to court&he signed the paper in the court room(proof he was there) then they sent everyone down to the probation office to get drug tested.Well other people left after they got tested.Well my husband failed his&they told him he would be serving 2weeks for that.So we left because rent was almost due&other bills&we have 2 kids. That was last month. Anyways,i would like to know how the jail is?Do they get to call more than once a day?Are they able to get out of the cell besides to shower?And what can I do to get his court date moved up to maybe this week sometime?He works 40+ hours a week and im a stay at home mom,so we depend on him.I think this is a misdemeanor failure to appear.Any advice about how to get him out asap,and anything about the jail.My cousin was in there&he said the jail was awful.Im stressing here&our kids have been crying all day&hollering for their daddy.I cant help but cry&im sitting here stressing over this bulls***.Thanks!!!!

We lived in Antioch/Nashville when he first got put on probation for 2 misdemeanors.We no longer live in Davidson County,we live an hour or so away from nashville now.So he's all the way in jail in Murfreesboro.Could I get him a public defender and they go see him in jail&get this taken care of?I talked with a lawyer not long ago and he said he thinks my husband could get expedited and this taken care of quick.But since we dont have the money to pay a lawyer up front i'd have to get him a public defender.But that lawyer said if I got my husband one now,that his court date would be alot sooner,possibly this week.Thanks!

I HAVE 2 BROTHERS INCARSERATED. ONE OF THEM WAS BEAT DOWN FOR NOT HAVING HIS SHIRT ON. HE WAS CHOCKED AND BEAT BY OVER 4 OFFICER TO THE POINT THAT HIS SKIN COLOR WAS TURNING RED/PURPLE. MY 19 YEAR OLD BROTHER THAT IS INCARSERATED WITH HIM HAD TO MOVE OFFICERS AWAY FROM HIM SO HE COULD BREATH. HE THOUGHT THEY HAD CHOKED THE LIFE OUT OF HIM DUE TO HIS SKIN TURNING A DIFFERENT COLOR AND HE COULD NO LONGER MOVE. THE ARE BOTH US CITEZENS BUT THE SHERRIF DEPARTMENT HAD IMMIGRATION ON THEM. THE SHERRIF DEPARTMENT ALSO HAS THEM IN SEGREATION WHICH I BELIEVE IS CALLED THE WHOLE. THEY DONíT GET ANY INFORMATION THEY REQUEST AND ACCORDING TO MY BROTHER THEY ARE BEING TREATED AS IF THEY WHEE DOGS. THEY MAKE RACIAL COMMENTS TO THEM ASWELL. EVEN THE CHIEF OF THE FACILITY TREATS THEM THE SAME. THEY EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY ARE ABUSING THEM. THE OFFICERS IN THAT FACILITY STATED THAT NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE THEM THAT THE OFFICER BEAT THEM ON MAY 18 BETWEEM 830AM AND 11AM. ACCORDING TO MY BROTHER THERE WAS CAMERAS AT THE FACILITY WHEN IT HAPPENED. HOWEVER I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CALL THE FACILITY LEAVING MSSG TO THE LT. COPE AND LT SALANDY BUT I GET NO RESPONSES. IT IS SAD THAT THIS IS HAPPENING. NO ONE SHOULD BE JUDGED OR TREATED DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF THEIR COLOR AND PAST.

You guys are regarding some serious irrational behavior stating officer beating people up while they are incarcerated.

That type of behavior does't stop on its own till someone makes a statement and sends the message that it will never happen again.

Hello Lawuit!!!???

The RCJ is no stranger to our community. If this was the case the situation would have been taken care of long ago.

It is funny how the guilty when backed into a corner always has something to complain about, and people like you guys just keep on believing them and feeling sorry for them.

Move on with your lives and stop whining here you won't find sympathy.

Lady you have no idea what when on in there. Im sure your two sweet innocent criminal sons always tell the truth. Before you want to start talking bad about people who protect you, consider where your getting your information from. If it wasn't for those officers your two little darlings would be out killing and raping decent human beings

I am curious as to why you made the comment about "killing" and "raping" unless you know the charges on the boys in question. Is that why they are locked up? Or do you work at the Rutherford County Jail where you can obtain that kind of information?

It's time to close this hell whole. Help me do this by sending me your contact information to mr.rene08@yahoo.com. I am doing some research on the Rutherford County Sheriff Department's abuse.

Hi, My name is Justin Nicholas Roper. I voted for you in this most recent election, and I am writing you to tell you that I am VERY happy with my outcome. Your focus on rehabilitation, especially through faith and community based organizations, is very refreshing. Also, your respect for the 1st. amendment by allowing access to newspapers and talk radio while incarcerated is a giant leap over Truman Jones's revolving door so he can have a job policy. Please keep up the good work, and remember that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of mitigation. If you truly want to help people, at least don't block them from doing anything that they can to help or educate themselves. Please expand programs for subtance treatment, as well as life goals programs. I am going to be in your jail starting March 30th. and I would like to have a chance at your leisure to talk to you any time thereafter. I am a voting constituent of yours, and now that you have given inmates the access to the press that they so badly wanted, I may be able to actually convince the inmates that one of those evil republicans actually cares about their rights to access to free press. For every inmate I tell that a Republican has done these good things for the inmates, you not only get their vote, but maybe their families as well. As long as you keep up the good work, I will remain a voting constituent, and convince others to do so. But as much as people think criminals need to be punished,(which they do), If you really care about your fellow man, you will continue and expand all educational or vocational opportunities that you can. I know of many church ministries that would be more than willing to help.

And let me qualify that statement above. It is STILL a brutal police state we live in. Rutherford county routinely kills people, and even more often let's them die horrible deaths without pain medicine while they are still innocent, and putting long term benzodiazepenes patients in danger of DEATH with slow and inadequate detox. And god forbid you have wrecked knees and take painkillers for it. After 2 weeks of withdrawls, you get to walk around on concrete floors with solid sandals, and pay $.90 for two tylenol. It's a bucket of shit, but the only thing that can be done is through supreme court.

I'm 100% behind you. Some people don't have a clue on how to change themselves and they need therapy to learn how to do it. It's more benificial for the common good to educate and help these inmates (those who want the help) then to release them, unchanged, back into society. I also think that they need to be classified as a 1, 2, 3 offender and violent and non-violent. It's wrong to lump them all under the same title. A 1st offender should be given a chance by the system to be rehabilitated. Hope Sheriff Arnold changes his detention center to be a model for rehabilitation. It would be a winner.

the situation in that jail is reprehensible..I have been told by a bondsman who was once a Lavergne Police Officer, he knew two very young men from out of town who were arrested. Before the bondman could get both of them out, once brother was beat to death. Although the jail quoted it as being a heart attack! What 19 year old has a heart attack, unless jailers are beating the tar out of him. Unfortunatley, the boys were from out of state and it took some time to get the family here to bond the boys out. Now one brother is dead,' of a heart attack ' heart attack my bottom!!! I would have a heart attack too if I were 18 years old being beaten to death by grown men with billy clubs and a attitude. It could be rumor, idk, but the thought is horrible and I have doubts the ex-officer would be lying about something so seriuous!!!

I have a friend in there right now, trying to get hold of the attorney to do a visitation, since he is in medical, he is not allowed visitors so we have no idea if hes ok or not. He fell down a flight of stairs there and re-injured his back, last we heard he had no control over his bowel movements. But they said he is not allowed visitors so we can't verify if hes ok...
