Adams County Jail A Tough Cell.

An inmate sits in the only “holding cell” in the entire jail, awaiting booking. Without a toilet, even this cell isn’t an actual proper holding cell. Typically many of those arrested and brought to the jail could wait in holding cells overnight and bond out of the jail after seeing a judge in the morning. However, since there are effectively no holding cells in the Adams County Jail, nearly everybody is booked and placed in the general population cells. Although the staff tries its best to classify inmates, because of the shortage of cells, it’s common for non-violent first-time offenders to be placed in the general population with violent offenders. | H-W Photo/Steve Bohnstedt
