Dewitt County – The Dewitt County
Sheriff Jered Shofner says his county jail is in need of some renovations.
The facility which is less than 20 years
old is beginning to show its age. Since the jail houses federal inmates and
some inmates from Cook
County the fees the
county collects for housing those inmates could help offset the cost of needed repairs.
A recent water main break a caused the
facility to partially evacuate.
