Jail Employee Placed on Administrative Leave

An employee at the Houston County Jail has been placed on administrative leave with pay.

We still have little details at this point.

However, what we do know is it’s related to the Inmate Medical Clinic and it's because of an internal audit and review of possible policy and procedure violations.

Sheriff Andy Hughes did not want to comment on the events surrounding the audit until the investigation is finished.
