I have heard from someone who's been there,a female that it's awlful there! If a halfway decent girl is put there for say a miner crime she will have to become a harden crimminal if she stays long or she will not make it,they will not protect you in there if you are not wanting any trouble, you will get beat up just cause you looked at someone.

I can honestly say that during my 56 day stay at the KRRJ I was raped. I'm not going to give any details on here but I wasn't the only one that this has ever happened to. It's ridiculous. The nurse Angie convinced me to press charges and make the state investigate the jail. I didn't mean to go to jail and THAT should not have been my punishment for not going to court because I was in the hospital!! I even had documentation to support this, but it didn't matter.

i agree! i know a woman that we are pretty sure she was bout to have a heart attack and the wonderful nurse there.. angie.. gave her a sleeping pill and told her to go lay down and cover up her head! i know this be cause i was in there i seen it myself! angie is a piece of shit. they let someone in my family lay there and about die ..even the judge in perry co leanne asked why he was still at the jail in that shape. she released him sent him stragt to the hospital.. but u would think somethin would have been done about that ..but no nothing!i saw linda the guard there.. a girl was throwing up blood .. linda told her to hold her vomit so she wouldnt get it on the floor! turned out that gurl had cancer... there all abunch of people that think they are above everyone else. i dont care what these people have done they dont deserve that!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010Old County Jail and LKLP
Updated on the "FC 10/11/2010 Meeting" Post. Please refer to it to learn what was done re the Old Jail.
LKLP has been awarded their $5,000,000 Grant to building the parking structure.

Fiscal Court Meeting - 2/17/2010 - A resolution by the KCFC to authorize the use of the old jail building and property as a match for funding to construct a new parking structure.

Summary -- "Be it resolved by the Court that Judge-Executive Randy Thompson be authorized to sign and execute all documentation necessary to request funding to construct a parking structure on the old jail building property, and be it further resolved that Judge-Executive Randy Thompson be authorized to write a letter of support suggesting the use of the old jail building and its property as a match for this funding."
Motion for adoption was made by Haskell Ritchie and seconded by John Short. Voting for: Haskell Ritchie,
John Short, Wade Noble and Thelma Hall." Motion was declared passed.

If you read the minutes and did nothing else this is all you would know. Judge did write a letter in support along with other people: Janice Jarrell, Mayor of Hindman; Scott Cornett, Mayor of Pippa Passes; Larry Parke (two letters - one for the Knott County Chamber of Commerce and one as Campus Director of the Knott County Branch of HCTC; Benny Ray Bailey of EKHSC; Dennis B. Prater, District Judge; Glenda Shrum, letter written on Administrative Office of the Courts stationery as Personnel Supervisor (of the Knott County Drug Court); Tricia Watts, Exec Dir of Appalachian Artisan Center; Dawnetta Dobson, of Knott Co Protection and Permanency; Connie J. Johnson, Coordinator of Knott Health Center; Eva Conley Huff, Knott County Senior Citizens; Charla C. Napier, COO of Primary Care Center of KY, and Kimberly D. Childers, Knott County Circuit Judge.

Following is a summary of the LKLP Proposal which is 59 pages: LKLP serves low-income, disabled, elderly and otherwise disadvantaged in 4 counties -- Leslie, Knott, Letcher and Perry. Some programs also serve other counties in cooperation with other organizations.

LKLP proposes to build a transit facility and parking structure, which incorporates an indoor climate controlled bus waiting area, and an outdoor walking tract on the perimeter or walkway of the one story
parking structure on recycled land adjacent to the rear of the LKLP Outreach Office in Hindman.

The parking structure would have 150 parking spaces and the walking tract would be 1,000 feet. The value of the jail being given away is $804,700. The State would match $500,000 and LKLP seeks $5,000,000.
The bus-waiting area would be in the building.

Right now, per Judge's letter, the old jail is being used only by the local parole officer meeting with parolees.
Proposal says that the "facility", which would incorporate LKLP Knott County Outreach office, would be
less than 1,000 feet from low-income housing and provide a "one stop shop" for transportation and housing-related services offering access to jobs, employment services, educational options and healthcare.(End of summary.)

Right now the county is paying $800 per month ($9,600 yr) to store voting equipment in the old funeral home building next to the courthouse, and $850 a month for two offices in the building behind the courthouse ($10,200 yr) for a total of $19,800 per year.

After the Grant Proposal is approved, the old jail property will be deeded to LKLP and they will do the things stated in the Proposal and whatever else they see fit as they will own the property.

Sounds like you need to sign up on foodstamps Perry co. Jail is only 8 min from Hindman..it shouldn't cost your family to much to come
see you. Besides that is your fault for doing things to put you on there. What has this world come to. Maybe you should do a documentary on Knott Co...

I know jail is not supposed to be like a fourstar hotel but they throw ppl in there and dont wanna even feed them enuff...and what they do feed inmates is so awful that u can barely eat it.. its bad, and then to give u koolaid with that old nasty gravy they fix for breakfast.. and wow, one peice of toast..hell my chld is 5 and he can eat more that that... when the jail was in knott co, they treated u good, fed u good, and u did get the proper medical care that u needed.. but now we gotta help perry co. out so they can have mre money... u know knott co. dont need it, we have always helped these other counties around here survive and thats why they have store, hospitals, and jails and knott co. dont have jack shit and never will... when u r in jail in perry co.. its hard for your amily to visit u, I mean who can aford to go to perry co. and also who can aford the phone calls to even talk to their family. and check on their kids.. KNOTT CO. needs to have their own jail but prolly never will again, they dont give a rats ass about criminals, and maybe thats why ppl dont care if they get help or not and they just keep doing the bad things cause they know that nobody cares about them.. Hey I been there and I know how it goes..

Im a woman and have been there. I was denied medical att. was threated to be jumped by 4 women& they wouldn't move me out. the guards told them to woop me and not to push the button for help! the guards told me they would drag me by my hair back into the cell! I had to call my mom to call up there to get them to take me out and was cussed out by the guards for calling home. They like it when people fight. Because they beat the inmates there selves i seen it myself. The quanity of food is a joke you get about aspoon full of each item. I lost 15lbs. in 5 wks. the guards are crooked the bring tobacco in to them for $100.00. Most of the time if you push the button for help they don't anser it. A few has died because they won't help u! that place needs to beshut down seriously!!
