    Crenshaw County Jail is a JOKE!! The sysytem is a worthless act of justice!! Sentence someone for a year and because they can't handle her they send her over to the mental hospital and then talked her son into gettng her out and moving to Florida (when he doesnt have a job or money to do this with). She has caused so much pain, and hurt to the ones that had her arrested, we had a fresh breath to know we would be free to live for a year just to have that taken away in 2 months time!! THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!

    Is Charlie West still the Sheriff? I knew him when he was an ABI agent in Montgomery. All he did was get drunk,cheat on his wife and ride around w/ porno movies in the trunk of his ABI car. Can't believe he was elected Sheriff? He wasn't even a good ABI agent.
