Yakima County is losing 8 full-time positions according to it's new budget plan -- all of the jobs are in the Law and Justice Department.

Commissioners say cuts will be made to the sheriff and prosecutor's office and the courts-- in order to fill a 1.6 million dollar gap for jail operating costs.

Earlier this week we told you the Yakima County Jail is also laying off 11 additional employees.
