VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - We now know when a site must be selected for a new Vigo County Jail.

Vigo County officials appeared before a federal judge on Tuesday.

That judge told them they must have a site selected for a new jail by mid-May.

Previously, county officials had to give quarterly progress reports. The judge switched that to monthly.

This includes reporting on jail population, jail staff hiring, efforts to build a new jail, inmate recreation, and jail violence.
