Exclamation Second set of 100 inmates shipped to private Mississippi prison

Second set of 100 inmates shipped to private Mississippi prison

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A second group of Alabama inmates arrived at a private lockup in Mississippi on Wednesday as prisons officials moved toward their goal of shipping 1,400 male prisoners out of state.

With the transfer of 100 inmates Wednesday, there are now 200 Alabama prisoners at the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility in Tutwiler, Miss. The prison is operated by Corrections Corporation of America.

The Alabama Corrections Department signed an emergency contract with CCA to transfer 1,400 inmates out of state. The department is under a court order to remove state prisoners from overcrowded county jails.

Alabama has also sent 309 female inmates from the Tutwiler Prison for women in Wetumpka to a private lockup in Louisiana. A judge had ordered the state to reduce the population at Tutwiler Prison from 1,000 to 750.

On September 22, 2003, my better half came home after 657 days in an Alabama prison!!!

And he's now forever free - passing away from this life and into the next - on January 9, 2010.
