McGee Gets His Own Cell

idaho.gov

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Former Republican state Sen. John McGee will likely be confined by himself in a Boise jail cell for the next month and a half. This living arrangement reflects a precautionary measure taken by Ada County law enforcement officials, who said they fear media attention to his crimes and his public profile could endanger his safety, were he housed in the general population. On Tuesday, McGee was sentenced to 44 days in jail for disturbing the peace after allegations he sexually harassed a legislative staffer. An Ada County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said Wednesday that McGee isn’t considered a threat to himself or others, which normally would result in his placement in a 95-bed, minimum-security dorm. Instead, he’s been jailed in an area with about a dozen cells, away from potential harm.
