Committee hears faults of jail
Bradley Hompe didn't sugar-coat the problems of the Pierce County Jail.
Of course, because his job is a jail inspector for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, that's not in his nature.
So, when asked Thursday by the Pierce County Jail Ad Hoc Committee, how bad is it, he didn't hold back.
Hompe told the committee, out of the 17 jails he inspects (his area goes from Superior to La Crosse and east to Clark County) Pierce is at or near the bottom.
