NORWALK

At least three inmates jumped from the balcony and top of the stairs at the Huron County jail last year.

Most likely the inmates decided getting out of jail for a while would be worth the pain and injury suffered from the 16-foot drop, officials said.

Whatever the motive, jail administrator and chief deputy Dave Battles plans to fix the problem by installing fencing on the balcony and stairs.
