Hinds County sheriff in federal court


Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason was in federal court in Gulfport today for a follow up on the county’s jails that are just outside the state’s capital.
Since 2015 the facilities have been under investigation for violating prisoner’s civil rights. Today, experts gave updates on how far the Hinds County Detention Centers have come since the initial complaint.
Experts today emphasized that there is still a lot of room for improvement as many of the deadlines have not been met. The main problems the detention centers still face are lack of staffing, which has led to riots and structural damage.
There will be a follow up inspection of the facilities in October.
