Too Fat For Jail

Can a person be “too fat” for jail? Apparently they can! This article had me quite shocked:

A woman is accused of killing her two-year-old nephew but prosecutors in Texas do not yet know how to get her to jail and court – because she weighs nearly half a ton.

She claimed it was an accident but a jury has already agreed that she should face charges of murder.
I can’t recall ever hearing about anyone possibly avoiding jail because of their size. Obviously she can’t go free so I wonder what the state will do with her. Fat camp???
