Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

A Milwaukee woman is accused of smuggling marijuana into an inmate at the Racine County Jail over the weekend.
Denielle Douglas, 32, is charged with delivering illegal articles to an inmate and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
According to the criminal complaint, she went to the jail on Sunday to cut an inmate’s hair. After the haircut was over, jail staff searched the inmate, and found a large bulge in his sock.
Inside the sock, staff reported finding cigarettes, which are contraband within the jail, and during a thorough search, found he had also hidden a bag of marijuana on his body.
When deputies talked with Douglas, she reportedly admitted bringing the cigarettes and marijuana into the jail. She admitted giving him the cigarettes, but said the inmate must have taken the marijuana out of her hair clipper bag.
She is in custody on a $500 cash bond, with a preliminary hearing set for Oct. 27.
