KOKOMO, Ind. - Sweeping changes to Indiana's criminal code are spurring Howard County to seek funding and a location for a work release program.
The changes that took effect July 1 will send more nonviolent criminals to community corrections programs and jails instead of state prisons. That has raised concern about jail crowding.
Howard County has been considering a work release program but has gone back to the drawing board after a study showed the former jail wasn't a feasible location.
Adult Community Corrections Director Ray Tetrault tells the Kokomo Tribune finding a location is becoming more urgent under the new sentencing guidelines.
Of 197 people housed in the county's jail in January, 113 could have been sentenced under the new guidelines if their cases had been filed after July 1.
