Budget cuts resulted in the layoffs of around 70 officers who worked in the jail, forcing Sheriff Margaret Mims to close the floors, and begin the early release of prisoners.</p><p>"Right now our capacity is at about 2,300 inmates and we run at 100 percent capacity almost all of the time," said Mims.</p> Thu, 31 May 2012 18:56:03 +0000 Ezra Romero 300 at http://kvpr.org
