Jefferson County Turning Jail into Bed & Breakfast for One Night

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 3:50 PM

Jefferson County Sheriff Oliver "Glenn" Boyer has come up with a curious way to raise money for new mattresses at the county's new jail addition.

On Friday, July 31, the sheriff's department is offering thrill seekers a chance to spend the night in the jail -- for $50 per person or $90 per couple. (Can you say "conjugal visit"?)

In a press release dated July 10 (but emailed yesterday July 14) the sheriff refers to the promotion as a jailhouse "bed and breakfast." Participants will be issued prison uniforms and be treated to trivia, games, movies and snacks. For an additional $10 guests of the B&B can be excused for the evening and sleep in their homes. But really, what  fun is that? Also, you'll miss breakfast in the morning.
