TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some Vigo County inmates are still living in the Knox County Jail.
Of the original 45 shipped to the jail, 22 are still living there.
Vigo County deputies transported the inmates to Knox County two months ago.
That came following an inmate filing an ACLU suit against Vigo County.
In that suit, an inmate claimed the jail was overcrowded.
Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing says they’re staying on top of the situation.
“I have to always be aware of our population here at the jail and also have to be aware of events that are occurring in our community,” Sheriff Ewing said.
Ewing says if there are large events around the county, there tends to be more arrests.
They are keeping an eye out to make sure their jail numbers stay fair.
