Smith County Jail to Transfer Inmates

The Smith County Jail will soon begin transferring inmates to ease its overcrowding problem.
Jail officials said they will try over the next several days to transfer at least 75 inmates to a facility in Texarkana.
Smith County will pay almost $40 a day to house inmates at other jail facilites.
The transfers come after Smith County was ordered to improve jail conditions by the Texas Commision on Jail standards in May.
