Default Public records lawsuit over food budgets

Quote:
Alabama law lets sheriffs keep whatever doesn’t get spent on food from their jail food funds. Now 49 of those sheriffs are refusing to disclose how much of that money made it to detainees’ plates, and how much landed in their own pockets.

If a sheriff spends all the food money on food, the detainees get $1.75 worth per day.

My son told me this...he said the food is uneatable. He only eats food from the store. He has to purchase food with his personal funds.

They probably don't want to end up like Sheriff Entrekin, once he was publicly shamed for being a Million Dollar Sheriff.
