CCA To Close Otter Creek

The Otter Creek Correctional Facility in Kentucky, run by CCA, has been marred by a litany of management and human rights issues throughout much of its history.  The worst of these issues would probably be the rampant sexual abuse suffered by female prisoners, which was in part what prompted the governor of Hawaii to work to remove all Hawaiian prisoners from private facilities on the continent.  CCA tried to cover up the sexual harassment and abuse, and the prison consistently suffered from a lack of oversight.  Thankfully, Kentucky declined to renew its contract with CCA and the company is, at least temporarily, closing the hellhole.  At least until it can find another government to victimize contract with.
