ACLU Files Lawsuit Against Vigo Co. Sheriff

The ACLU of Indiana has filed a lawsuit against the Vigo County Sheriff's Department.

The suit alleges the department failed to hold up its end of a settlement agreement to address chronic overcrowding in the Vigo County Jail.

ACLU Legal Director Ken Falk says the goal of the suit is to force the department and county commissioners to comply with the agreement reached back in 2002.

Vigo County attorney Mike Wright says the county won't respond to the lawsuit until they've actually seen the paperwork.
