Grand Jury Issues Report

Lauderdale County, Miss. Lauderdale County's Grand Jury has wrapped up its session, and issued a final report. The jurors this week returned 155-indictments and chose not to indict four people.

The Grand Jury also investigated county buildings, and reports the Lauderdale County Detention Facility has lots of leaks, and is overcrowded. Also, the Jury found that the Criminal Investigation Division is too small for County investigators. And once again, the Jury reports the historic Lauderdale County Courthouse is in desperate need of renovations and is not safe to work in.

The Lauderdale County Supervisors recently passed a bond issue that, in part, will go for courthouse renovations.
