Default $64.32 a day: The cost of doing time in Franklin County Jail in PA

The cost of keeping one person locked up at Franklin County Jail is about the same as buying a fancy dinner for two or about 20 gallons of gas every day.

While the average inmate stays there less than two months, some have exceeded two years behind the county's bars while their case works through the system. In the meantime, they've racked up expenses that look like the price tags on luxury cars.

Warden Daniel Keen said that the cost to house an inmate at the jail in 2010 was $64.32 per day. This figure is based on a $9.5 million operating budget that year. The cost per day has not yet been calculated for 2011.
