CCA opened its books to county commissioner Jeff Stabins in Hernando County, Florida as part of their attempt to prevent Sheriff Nugent from taking over operations of the jail there. CCA currently operates the facility but the Sheriff claims he can do it better and cheaper than they can (see previous posts on this). I'm inclined to believe him (at least about doing it better), considering CCA, a company notorious for cutting corners to maximize profits, has cut costs in nearly every aspect of the operation of the Hernando County Jail for 2010, including food services, utilities, supplies, and medical care. Great CCA. Juuuuuuussssssst great.
