That same month, a former inmate in the Benton County (Ark.) jail filed a federal lawsuit against Keefe Commissary Network and the Benton County sheriff over the fees, which included a $1.50 weekly maintenance fee.

The company responded in a court filing that the “so-called ‘numerous and exorbitant fees’ at issue involved less than $14,000 in debit card usage fees,” out of $260,000 in debit cards issued to inmates in a 14-month period.
