GLASGOW, Ky. — The Kentucky Department of Corrections is standing by the conclusion of one if its employees after a county magistrate accused the person of writing a false inspection report about the Barren County Jail.

Corrections spokeswoman Lisa Lamb told the Glasgow Daily Times ( http://bit.ly/V6zWyb) that she was aware of Magistrate Chris Steward’s accusation about Jail Inspector Tracey Reed. Lamb said the department has “absolute confidence” in the abilities of the agency’s employees.

Reed conducted a routine, unannounced inspection of the Barren County Detention Center on Nov. 27. The official report following the inspection noted that the jail had “slight overcrowding,” which didn’t require action from the DOC.

In a Dec. 18 meeting, Steward said county jail inmates must have complaints about something and therefore Reed’s report should not be deemed credible.
