Inmate ATM At Montague County Jail

Inmates in Montague County now have an easier way to receive money into their jail accounts.

The Montague County Sheriff's Office said the new kiosk is similar to an ATM.

The office said the automated system will allow money to be put directly into an inmate's account.

Sheriff Paul Cunningham said the new system increases security and eliminates other from having to handle cash.

Also once inmates are released, Sheriff Cunningham said they will be able to get their money immediately from their account, instead of having to wait for a check in the mail.
