What to do? Well the county can open a 57 bed pod that has not been used yet...at the tune of about $400 thousand. O'Malley said he, the sheriff, judges, justice sanctions and other officials are looking into different sanctions for behavior to try to keep more people out of jail. He says several meetings were held Monday on the matter and more are coming as they try not to spend money......money that could go towards highway work.
