County Jail To House Extra Inmates

Koochiching County's jail could see a few more inmates in its cells.

The County has agreed to handle prisoners from Nett Lake, a small community bordering Koochiching and St. Louis Counties.

Sheriff Brian Jesperson says it comes with a few dollars to offset costs.

Jesperson says the contract also gives the County the option not to take inmates who may too violent for jail staff.
