HILLSBORO, Mo. – Want to spend a night in jail? And how about paying for the privilege? The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department in eastern Missouri has come up with a novel way to pay for mattresses at a new jail addition.
Officials are offering the public a chance to stay overnight on July 31 at the recently finished addition. For $50 a person or $90 a couple, people can tour the new facility, learn more about jail, and stay overnight. They'll receive Jefferson County "bed and breakfast" T-shirts, snacks — and souvenir mug shots.
Also included is a "get out of jail free" card. Those who want to leave early have to give another $10. Proceeds benefit the county's jail maintenance fund.
My first bed for 3 weeks was an airbed from kmart, why arnt these prisoners working to earn their new mattress like I had too !!
