The White County Jail is used to house state prisoners, both male and female. A large majority of them are classified as “pre-trial detainees”. It is hereby acknowledged that pre-trial detainees retain most of their individual rights afforded to them by the constitution. Punishment of pre-trial detainees is out of harmony with the 14th amendment to the constitution, which forbids the deprivation of liberty without due process of law. The physical facility of the White County Jail may somewhat limit the rights of inmates, but whenever possible the fullest rights will be afforded to each inmate.

Inmates have strict mail guidelines. Please review them.
