Can an old state prison be the solution to jail overcrowding for some East Tennessee counties?
Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton said he explored the idea with other sheriffs.
“We went to the old Brushy Mountain site at the request of Morgan County Sheriff (Glen) Freytag to look at the facility to see if it could be utilized in the future for possible overcrowding issues for Scott, Roane and Morgan,” Stockton said. “We went through the whole penitentiary and looked at the pros and cons.”
