MORE WAYNE COUNTY RESIDENTS PER CAPITAL JAILED THAN DAYTON AND CINCINNATI COMBINED

(Richmond, IN)--Some Wayne County residents complain that local criminals are granted too much leniency.  Some newly-released numbers show just the opposite.  For every 10,000 residents, 65.6 Wayne County people are incarcerated.  That’s a higher per capita rate than Dayton and Cincinnati combined.  While Wayne County’s rate is 65.6, Preble County’s is only 13.9.  Randolph County’s is even lower.  It’s just 9.8 in jail per 10,000 residents.
