Benton County Sheriff Diana Simpson testified at a hearing for a new Senate Bill that would bring offenders sentenced to two years or less back to the counties where they committed their crimes. “If we add these additional inmates to our jail, it’s going to have a devastating impact financially, not only for our jail costs, but also in maintaining our population in the jail as it is.” Simpson is concerned about the bill because Benton County has the smallest jail facility of any county in the State.
