LAWRENCE COUNTY ARREST LIST - AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 7, 2017

by WADE QUEEN

THE NUMBER OF ARRESTS WERE BELOW NORMAL AGAIN THIS WEEK IN LAWRENCE COUNTY, BUT THE ARREST NUMBERS IN THE SURROUNDING COUNTIES WERE WELL ABOVE NORMAL FROM THE LAST DAY IN AUGUST INTO THE FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER.

BECAUSE OF THIS, THE OVERCROWDING AT THE BIG SANDY REGIONAL DETENTION CENTER IN PAINTSVILLE HIT AN ALL TIME HIGH DURING THE EARLY PART OF THE LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND, REACHING 40% OVERCAPACITY, WITH 315 INMATES BEING HOUSED SATURDAY NIGHT SEPTEMBER 2, EVEN THOUGH THE REGIONAL JAIL STATED MAXIMUM DESIGNED CAPACITY NUMBER IS 225 INMATES.

AFTER THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND, ON TUESDAY THE JAIL NUMBERS BEGAN TO GO DOWN AS WEEKENDERS WENT HOME, AND OTHERS BONDED OUT, AND THE POPULATION COUNT WENT TO 295 BY WEDNESDAY, GOING UP TO 303 THURSDAY, (AND AT 9 A.M. FRIDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 8, IT IS AT 293).

BUT THE STATISTICS ARE SHOWING THE CONTINUOUS PRESSURE IS RISING ON THE BSRDC IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS DUE TO SEVERELY INFLATED NUMBER OF INMATES THAT ARE BEING CARED FOR. THEY ARE BEING WORSENED DUE TO BOYD COUNTY INMATES BEING BROUGHT IN DUE TO THE BOYD COUNTY JAIL BEING PARTIALLY CLOSED FROM THE RIOT LAST MONTH. ALSO, THERE ARE NUMEROUS INMATES BEING BOOKED FROM OTHER EASTERN KENTUCKY COUNTIES THAT ARE NOT THE MAIN FOUR COUNTIES THAT MAKE UP THE REGIONAL JAIL. AND FINALLY THE FACT MAGOFFIN COUNTY IS A HUGE NEST OF CRIMINALS, AS THEY ARE LITERALLY EVERY WEEK MAKING UP THE MOST INMATES WHO ARE BOOKED, CAUSING A DISPROPORTIONATE LEVEL WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER NEIGHBORING COUNTIES.

IN THE PAST EIGHT DAYS FROM 12:01 A.M. AUGUST 31 THRU 11:59 P.M. SEPTEMBER 7; OUT OF THE AT LEAST 120 INMATES BOOKED AT THE BIG SANDY REGIONAL DETENTION CENTER IN PAINTSVILLE, 10 OF THEM WERE FROM LAWRENCE COUNTY. PLUS ANOTHER FIVE LAWRENCE COUNTY RESIDENTS WERE BOOKED ACROSS COUNTY LINES ( 3 IN MARTIN COUNTY, 1 IN JOHNSON COUNTY, AND 1 IN MAGOFFIN COUNTY ).

THAT IS COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS SIX DAY PERIOD FROM 12:01 A.M. AUGUST 25 THRU 11:59 P.M. AUGUST 30; OUT OF THE AT LEAST 81 INMATES BOOKED AT THE BIG SANDY REGIONAL DETENTION CENTER IN PAINTSVILLE , 8 OF THEM WERE FROM LAWRENCE COUNTY. (PLUS ANOTHER THREE LAWRENCE COUNTY RESIDENTS WERE BOOKED IN MARTIN COUNTY).

THERE WERE TEN PEOPLE ARRESTED IN LAWRENCE COUNTY IN THE LAST 8 DAYS: HERE ARE SOME SOBERING STATISTICS:

* THERE WERE 11 INMATES BROUGHT TO THE BSRDC FROM BOYD & GREENUP COUNTIES DUE TO THE BOYD COUNTY JAIL FIASCO. THEY WERE NEARLY ALL WEEKENDERS.

* THE NUMBER OF PRISONERS FROM COUNTIES IN THE PAST 8 DAYS WHO ARE NOT FROM THE 4 COUNTIES PARTNERING AT THE BIG SANDY REGIONAL DETENTION CENTER WAS MORE THAN DOUBLE THOSE BROUGHT FROM JUST LAWRENCE COUNTY.

* BECAUSE OF THIS THE NUMBER OF PRISONERS FROM MORGAN COUNTY BROUGHT IN THE LAST 8 DAYS THEIR NUMBER WAS ALSO HIGHER THAN LAWRENCE COUNTY.

* THE MOST SOBERING STATISTIC: THERE WERE TEN PEOPLE ARRESTED IN LAWRENCE COUNTY IN THE LAST 8 DAYS. IN THAT SAME 8 DAY PERIOD THERE WERE 30 PRISONERS FROM MAGOFFIN COUNTY! THAT IS EXACTLY 25% ( ONE QUARTER ) OF THIS PAST WEEK'S TALLY OF PRISONERS BROUGHT TO THE BIG SANDY REGIONAL DETENTION CENTER. ( IN FACT THE USUAL PERCENTAGE OF EVERY PRISONER WEEKLY TOTAL FROM MAGOFFIN COUNTY RUNS BETWEEN 20% TO 30% ).

HERE IS THE DAILY ARREST COUNT FOR THE BSRDC THIS MONTH:


THURSDAY AUGUST 31: 12
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 1: 18
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 2: 16
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 3: 18
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 4: NINE (9)
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 5: 14
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 6: 11
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 7: 22

Maybe Michael Pennington was the ref at the Tolsia game but I am curious as to how Chuck Jackson arrested the whole town of Georgetown. Maybe he should be our next Sheriff and he can arrest the whole town of Louisa.
