Thu. 10:57am: Sheriff: Jail up to full capacity soon

YOUNGSTOWN – Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene expects to have the county jail fully staffed by the end of March or early April.

Greene said after commissioners approved a fee for newly booked prisoners to pay that several measures he has implemented to raise funds should allow the jail to be fully staffed.

The jail has been operating at less than full capacity because of the county’s budget woes. Greene became sheriff at the first of the year.
