First inmate graduates from digital GED program

Eric Sassaman walked into the Hardin County Detention Center with the feeling that advancement was out of reach because of his background.

But he will walk out of the jail this weekend with an education.

Sassaman, 31, of Wolfe County, is the first inmate at the detention center to earn a GED through the jail’s new digital testing system.

Justin Hall, information technology director at the jail, said the detention center is certified to administer the GED test in a computerized format as the state moves away from paper tests.
