CCA has now announced its intention to opt out of its contract with Hernando County, Florida when it ends in 120 days. As I've written about before, an inspection of the jail recently by Sheriff Richard Nugent, who at the time wanted to take over operations of the facility, uncovered millions of dollars worth of maintenance issues. I think this is CCA's way of trying to force the county to pay for the upgrades to the jail they should have made over the years; that will probably be part of any new contract they sign. Or they'll just let the county deal with the huge mess they've created by their malfeasance and inability to operate a humane facility. I really hate you, CCA.
