Sheriff Says Jail Expansion is Needed, But Opposition Mounts

Washington County Sheriff's Office

The Washington County sheriff has spent the last few months going before the Quorum Court to make his case for a $38 million jail expansion project that would be funded through a new tax, but opposition to the proposal is mounting. Residents and activists say they would like the county to invest in more alternatives to incarceration instead of an expansion.
