Sheriff’s office says Marion County Jail full again, even with some offenders relocated

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — There were just six free beds in the Marion County Jail system Monday morning and that’s only because more than two dozen offenders are sleeping in other county jails across Indiana.

Col. Louis Dezelan of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office reported to the Criminal Justice Planning Council that the jail system’s available bed space of 2,507 offenders was surpassed by 19 inmates, but the relocation of 25 persons serving state prison sentences to Daviess, Blackburn and Rush counties allowed the local count to remain above crisis stage but below capacity.
