Now that some time has passed since Sheriff Nugent of Hernando County, Florida, decided to take over operations of the jail from CCA, it seems appropriate to take a look at the transition process.
Unfortunately, it's looking to be a long and costly process. The jail needs millions of dollars worth of maintenance work to make up for "22 years of neglect" by CCA. The jail has serious problems with rat and roach infestations, as well as plumbing and sprinkler issues. In short, CCA declined to perform any real maintenance on the jail in their 22 years of operating it.
You get what you pay for.
