Iberville Parish Jail to reopen, return to housing inmates
IBERVILLE PARISH- After spending months and hundreds of thousands of dollars on repairs, the Iberville Parish Jail is set to reopen and return to housing inmates.
It has been nearly six months since the jail first closed.

Showers were also replaced during the renovation. Stassi says all of the improvements are much needed.
