Inmate dies at Adair County Jail

An inmate has reportedly died at the Adair County Regional Jail.

According to the Adair County Community Voice in Columbia, 52-year-old Anthony Robinson died at the jail early Monday morning.

The facility’s nurse had reportedly requested that Robinson be transferred due to a medical condition but the Kentucky Department of Corrections had not yet made the move.

Robinson pleaded guilty to two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, 1st degree, and possession of marijuana, according to the newspaper. He was sentenced to five years in prison and became a state inmate on March 14.

Adair County Jailer Jamie Richard said Robinson had a history of medical issues since being housed at the jail.

The death is being investigated by the Kentucky State Police.
