Based upon the inmate list, I’m counting 950 inmates at the Sarasota County Jail.
The jail has a capacity of 750, so the jail is 127% of capacity. The State prison system is at capacity, so they are probably dragging their feet on accepting convicted and sentenced prisoners.
Yesterday, Leos arrested 24 people for contempt/vop, 19 people for victim/property crimes, and 27 people for various victimless crimes.
The Leos and the people of the County can’t keep doing this, the jail will be at 200% of capacity within no time. Time to go to Federal court and file some cruel and unusual punishment briefs.
