COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - It appears there’s no way around it this time. Last month, Branch County just barely avoided its second jail overcrowding emergency of the year. However, with Tuesday’s inmate population at 151 being the seventh straight day the number of prisoners was clearly over the rated capacity of 142 for the lockup, some of the offenders behind bars are expected to be in line now for sentence reductions. 13 inmates received early releases in February.
