HILLSBORO, Mo. (AP) - Want to spend a night in jail? And how about paying for the privilege? The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department in eastern Missouri has come up with a novel way to pay for mattresses at a new jail addition.

Officials are offering the public a chance to stay overnight on July 31 at the recently finished addition. For $50 a person or $90 a couple, people can tour the new facility, learn more about jail, and stay overnight.

I would actually do that. Sounds kinda neat. Having to travel 4000 miles for the privilege is a bit much though.
