BLOUNTVILLE — On Tuesday, Sullivan County’s jail facilities housed 825 inmates. By Friday afternoon, that number was down to 743, despite new intakes in the days since. That’s a decrease of more than 80 inmates.

Where’d they go?

Home.

How’d that happen?

“The majority of those released from our jail are pretrial release inmates,” Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Andy Seabolt said.
