39 inmates, some of whom were convicted of crimes like rape in the third degree, menacing, and assault were released from the Josephine county adult jail this Wednesday morning.

A tax levy on the May ballot didn't get enough support and the county jail was forced to slash staff and the number of inmates behind bars.

NBC 5's Larry Miller has the latest.
