Fisher County Jail fails state inspection

By Jeff Hurt

During the commissioners court meeting Monday, Fisher County Judge Ken Holt and Sheriff H.T. Fillingim discussed the recent jail inspection, where the state discovered a total of 12 non-compliant violations at the facility.

Fillingim said the inspector, Shane Sowell, told him most of the deficiencies were simply “a paper shuffle” and not a big deal. He went on to say most of the deficiencies were remedied before the inspector left, as many violations were due to a lack of documentation and that the department was now using the most updated and correct forms.
