CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - On a Friday in late December, about 80 inmates were moved from the Franklin County Jail to the courthouse for the call of the incarcerated for the January trial term, a logistical exercise that meant a dozen or more round trips by Sheriff's Office vans along the six-mile route. If all goes as planned for the May trial term, the inmates on the trial term list will only have to be walked down a corridor to a courtroom within the jail. Each week, deputies have to move inmates from the jail to the courthouse for sentencings, arraignments, preliminary hearings in Central Court or other courtroom procedures.
