Required to inspect the county’s incarceration facilities every year, the 2013/14 Trinity County grand jury has issued a report on its most recent findings, concluding that the county jail in Weaverville continues its fall into a dilapidated state requiring immediate actions to protect the community, staff and inmates.
Previous grand jury reports have been highly critical of the jail’s condition for several years and the one just issued is no exception, finding that it remains in a state of physical decline with plumbing, air conditioning, electrical, furnishings and structures falling into a dilapidated state.
