Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz.

The Tulsa Sheriff goes to court to try and force the state to take those inmates ready for Department of Corrections custody. Stanley Glanz is seeking an injunction against DOC Director Justin Jones.

The affidavit filed in Tulsa District Court by Glanz states of the current jail population of more than 18-hundred…129 are DOC-ready inmates “that the DOC refuses to schedule and receive into custody.” Glanz says that’s a big reason why the jail population has exceeded capacity for more than four months.
