County could receive new regional jail


A regional jail could be on its way to Lawrence County.

County Judge Dale Freeman said the facility would house about 250 county and state inmates.

Judge Freeman said they are looking at a piece of property the county already owns and the state could help with the construction of the new facility.

Judge Freeman was getting ready to send off the paperwork on the new jail Friday.
