More women arrested for pain pills stresses jails
May 21, 2013 16:44 GMT
KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee prosecutor says the burgeoning pain pill problem is filling jails beyond capacity with women.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney General Russell Johnson told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/13HXKj6 ) three of the four counties in his district have overcrowded jails, largely because of an increase in women being arrested.
Johnson said women are becoming pain pill addicts and described the situation as an epidemic.
Johnson said when mothers become addicted, their children often go without food and parenting. He said sometimes children end up under the care of the Department of Children's Services, further stressing an overburdened agency.
