They should have seen it coming

Follow up on the case in Kentucky in which numerous instances of sexual assault were uncovered between guards and the female inmates:

Despite nearly 4 years' worth of internal reports performed by the KY-DOC showing the Otter Creek Correctional Facility was understaffed, the department never found it necessary to invoke their right to fine CCA for not properly staffing the facility. Further, some of the positions may have been vacant for longer than 60 days, which should have escalated the fines against CCA. Oh, and Kentucky happens to be 1 of only 3 states in which sexual assault by a correctional officer is treated as a misdemeanor rather than a felony.
