Rally will protest conditions at Jeffco Jail

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A rally is set for today for better inmate conditions at the Jefferson County Jail. Family and friends of inmates say they will protest around noon.

Organizers of this demonstration say they are concerned about overcrowding, cleanliness and cold food among other things.

"They don't get medical care. They're overcrowded. They're in the same uniform. My daughter has been there since July 27 in the same uniform," said Bridgette Gober.

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Randy Christian emailed this statement saying the conditions are deplorable and that is well documented. He went on to say they are probably better fed and medically cared for than most of the free population.
