CROCKETT, Texas (KTRE) - A state commission has added the Houston County Jail on its non-compliant list following an Oct. 8 inspection.

The inspection report states “an inmate did not receive follow-up care as instructed by a physician after discharge from a hospital.”

Counties are listed as non-compliant once they receive verification that the county has received official notice. Once they are determined to be compliant, the jails are removed from the list.
