District Attorney General Russell Johnson said last week he isn’t ready to soften his stance on probation violators.
The Roane County Jail faces the prospect of decertification due to overcrowding. Many people are in jail for violating probation.
“A lot of it is they’re testing positive on drug tests, or they’re picking up new charges,” Johnson said. “That just goes to show why those folks need to be in there longer if they’re not conforming to the rules and re-offending.”
