    I caught scabies in Jefferson county jail, Steubenville Ohio. They do not care to treat the problem. I'm calling the health department! It was ridiculous!

    If you dont like Jefferson countys hotel for criminals then dont commit a crime. Taxpayers would gladly send you on an all expense paid trip to live with Sherrif Joe in Arizona!

    MM, It is the Jefferson County Jail not a prison. The people housed in the jail aren't to be written off as less than human but judging by the content of your comment I'm assuming that is the mentality of the area. I know it is I live here and haven't set foot inside the jail but it can't be all that bad the building is fairly new. We'd also need to think about the "quality" of the building which leaves much to be desired.....I wonder if any of the cells leak rainwater also? What a joke it is. Before any "defamation" suits are to be filed please realize my comment is merely in jest and the jail is an extension of the public entity Jefferson County......

    how do i find arrest records for Frances Darlene Wright and court date for identity theft 03/13/13 jefferson county steubenville ohio

  6. Chris R Mon, Apr 29 2013 8:43 AM

    just because it is a fairly new building doesn't mean anything, The showers are only cleaned out one a week by another inmate who is trusty for that week or month, they are only given one towel a week and that towel is turned in on Tuesday morning and not returned till late Tuesday eve, the inmates are only given two uniforms a week and most are ripped and torn, at least the blue's the women are given, the nurse their is could give a shit if you are living or dying, if she decides to see you then she see's you, some go in and never see the nurse, which I think should be a first on the list, there was not only scabies going around but ringworm also in the girls pod, The intercom boxes in the cells are most of the time put on Isolation, so if you did have an emergency during the night while locked down you wouldn't get the attention you needed until the co decided to do rounds that night, It's hard to keep the pod clean and up to standards when you are only given cleaning supples once a day to clean your cell and the entire pod and that is at 6:30 am, then by 7 all cleaning supples have to be returned, So germs are going to be spread very easy. I never seen any co's be physically abusive with a female inmate, but I have witnessed some verbal abuse. Regardless what you may feel is okay to live in or like because someone committed a crime, they are still human beings and deserve to be treated as such, these are not prisoners persay, these are county people doing time for small offenses, It is sad when you can go to prison and get more uniforms, towels, cleaner area and so forth, but all this money was spend on this new jail, that tax payers pay for and the inmates are wearing old rags as uniforms, old nasty shower shoe's that stink, the shower only gets cleaned once a week and one towel a week to keep yourself clean and most use that same towel as a pillow because they are only given when booked in, uniform, towel, soap, roll of tp, toothbrush and small toothpaste. Please don't forget that someday you family member or even yourself could make a mistake and end up doing some time, then I assume your views on how things are run will change.

    Hi Chris R. Were you in jefferson county jail anytime from March 2013-June 2013? Or do you know anyone that was?

  8. Freebird Wed, Jul 31 2013 3:46 AM

    The Jefferson County jail is in my opinion worse than a dog pound. While I had my short stay there, they wouldn't give me a phone call when I got booked, they wouldn't tell me when I was going to be arraigned or go to court. They were very rude when I did ask. They don't give you anything to drink except for 1 milk at breakfast, nothing to drink with lunch or dinner. My cell mare was having lesion sex it a girl from the next cell so there were times I could not even go to my own cell. The girls that get Meds in there crush them and snort them up their nose, even with the pregnant girls, they run naked through the pod, always flashing their books, vaginas and butter to the other girl inmates. There is absolutely no order in that pod. That jail is inhumane and should be under investigation. I didn't even get my one phone call at booking like your supposed to so my family would know what happened to me, and I was there on a misdemeanor. So all that being said Jefferson County jail is a joke, full of prostitutes and from the stories I heard in there there is a few cops and Co's that hire them, so go figure the place is a disease infested junkie, whore house, god bless anyone that truly doesn't deserve to be there.
