Default Curiosity-can state inmates housed in county go outside?

can inmates in Kentucky jails expect to see daylight or go outside during their incarceration. State inmates specifically.
One day at a time.

I think it depends on the county jail. My son was in one where he couldn't but was sent to another before going to Roederer where he could.

According to Ky Jail Standards, for any county facility that houses state inmates:

Section 5. Recreation Programs. (1) Written policy and procedure shall provide all prisoners with the opportunity to participate in at least one (1) hour of physical exercise per day with at least three (3) exercise periods per week outside the cell. There shall be available one (1) hour of outdoor recreation two (2) times per week if weather permits. Prisoners who pose a threat to the safety and security of the jail shall be denied outdoor recreation.

Legislative Research Commission PDF VersionPage: 2(2) Leisure time and recreation programs shall be scheduled to permit prisoners to partici-pate in board games, artsand crafts, radio and television,or other activities designed to relieve idleness and boredom.

See Chapter 3:


Here is the PDF of the exact KAR page (501.130):


That being said....do county facilities follow the law concerning Prisoner's Rights? Why, hell no, they don't.

My step son is a Kentucky state inmate and he has had outside jobs. He was at Bourbon county and worked at the animal shelter or something like that. He was moved to Powell county and so far he's been in the kitchen but he's at least under the impression that he's just about to go outside and work there too. He said they just have a couple in front of him and a few are about to parole out
