Problems with court/jail system under review at Shelby County Commission
SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — The General Sessions Shelby County Clerk says the new jail and courts computer system is causing delays for inmates. It’s been several weeks since the system was implemented and the problems associated with it don’t seem to be going anywhere.
Commissioners heard some of the complaints people still have with the new system on Wednesday.
“[We need to figure out] how to first bail the water out of the boat and then we got to figure out how to fix the boat,” said Commissioner Heidi Shafer.
She’s referring to the numerous problems reported with the new court and jail computer system. Delays have inmates sleeping on the floor, being kept behind bars too long and getting lost in the database.
Josh Spickler with Just City filed a lawsuit against the county and Sheriff based on these stories.
“I think that`s the biggest hope in this lawsuit is there will be accountability for how they spent our money and how they`ve used our jail,” said Spickler.
The lawsuit led commissioners to go off the record on Wednesday.

America’s 10 Worst Prisons: Rikers Island
New York City lockup has a “deeply entrenched” pattern of violence by guards, lawsuit claims.
Serving time in prison is not supposed to be pleasant. Nor, however, is it supposed to include being raped by fellow prisoners or staff, beaten by guards for the slightest provocation, driven mad by long-term solitary confinement, or killed off by medical neglect. These are the fates of thousands of prisoners every year—men, women, and children housed in lockups that give Gitmo and Abu Ghraib a run for their money.
