Nueces County Sheriff JC Hooper went to Facebook on Monday to elaborate on his frustration with the 99% capacity currently experienced in prison.
“they [inmates] We are also waiting for their day in court with the families of all the victims. The court system here in Nueces County needs to move again in a very positive way to solve this serious problem. “
Hooper also told the Caller Times on Tuesday that he expected a prison that failed an inspection conducted by the Texas Prison Standards Board last week because of the capacity of the inmates.
“I haven’t received a report yet, but after discussing with the inspector, we are completely suspicious that we will be non-compliant,” he said. “All her concerns about our prison were related to overcrowding.”
“This is happening because the court resigned during COVID. They just closed,” Hooper said.
However, Judge Inna Klein of the 214 District Court in Nueces County said the issue was much more complicated.
“So, on the other hand, we come out of COVID, and the governor says it’s okay, you no longer need a mask … but at the same time, the governor is still personally aware of the judge. I’m telling you not to give a bond to anyone who has been convicted of violence at any time, “Judge Klein told the Caller Times on Tuesday. “And by itself raises some practical and philosophical problems.”
