Description

The Lufkin, Texas, Daily News reports that "It's no secret that the Angelina County Jail is outdated and too small to hold enough prisoners for a county of its size, but an inside look at the jail may reveal some safety concerns, as well. Since 1993, county officials have been under a federal court order to control the population of the jail - keeping the number of prisoners being detained at 111 or fewer. Since that time, the county has had to turn out 451 prisoners before their scheduled release dates"
