A local attorney is adding another person to his case.

Gary Logsdon plans to file for another plaintiff to be added to his class action suit.

A local lawyer files a law suit for two former inmates against the Warren County Regional Jail.

Plaintiffs Stuart Cole and Loren Patterson are together in a fight against the Warren County Regional Jail for putting their checks into an inmate account at South Central Bank. “Of course, I question that, because I thought that was extremely odd because the check was made out to my son, it was for books. So, I don’t know how in the world a bank could cash a check that doesn’t belong to them,” said Patterson’s mother Penny Patterson. Patterson was in the jail in September of 2011 and Cole was there in March of 2009 both for arrested for operating a...
