TJP Commentary
Victoria County Jail is the reason Texas Jail Project came into being. Diane Wilson was held here for over three months in 2005-2006. 21 year old Shandra Williams gave birth alone in a solitary cell in 2005 begging for help. Not only did her baby boy die but she was also denied permission to attend her baby's funeral. Her crime? Apparently a check she was cashing for her boyfriend had a forged signature. More recently, 32 year old Clinton Harrington died here due to medical neglect and abuse. https://www.victoriaadvocate.com/news/local/couple-question-quality-of-medical-care-in-victoria-jail-in/article_135bb4cc-1853-11e9-9549-d71e89326e31.html
