County jail in northeast Ohio under deadline to detail plans to improve conditions

A county jail in northeast Ohio is under a deadline to address conditions including overcrowding and declining staff.
According to a draft report obtained by the Akron Beacon Journal , the jail has a lack of inmate programming, no recreation time, too many lockdowns and poor design.
A state inspection report earlier this year said the jail, with more than 600 inmates, is overcrowded and doesn't book inmates in a timely manner.
There was no immediate word from county officials or the legal team involved in a jail lawsuit on when the improvement report would be released.
