Genesee County jail overcrowding may be a thing of the past

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Overcrowding at a local county jail could soon be over.

This week the Flint City Jail should re-open.

Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell tells the Flint Journal that while the jail is ready, insurance to operate the facility for suspects has been a sticking point for years, in a city struggling to crack down on crime.

Recently the county jail released more than 100 inmates because of overcrowding.
