Yakima Jail Inmates Will Pay When Booked into Jail

Yakima County Jail inmates will now have to pay a fee for being incarcerated.

Yakima County Commissioners approved a measure this week to assess a $50 fee for anyone who is booked into the county jail.

The move is an attempt to help offset costs -- currently the jail population is around 750 people.

The fee will go into effect at the beginning of next month.
