County Attorney Says Excessive Writs Overcrowd Robertsport Prison
By D .Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, August 13 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Attorney Abraham Simpson has attributed the overcrowding of the Robertsport Prison to the excessive issuance of writs of arrest by magistrates.

He said it was regrettable that magistrates in the county hardly issue writs of summons, but rather writs of arrest which, he noted, has led to the overcrowding of the prison.

The County Attorney said the prison, which was designed to hold only 15 persons, is currently hosting 39 inmates, noting that this was “very bad.”

In remarks at the official opening of the August Term of the 5th Judicial Circuit Court in Robertsport recently, he also attributed the overcrowding of the prison to the failure of complainants to follow up their cases.
