TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Lee County jail will soon get a lot more high-tech.

Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson says his department is putting in a video visitation and arraignment system.

He says the new system will prevent having to take inmates out of the jail for an arraignment or court appearances.

Sheriff Johnson says the system would also allow people to visit inmates from their homes via a computer camera after paying a fee.
