CCA Rep. to Meet with Youngstown Mayor McNally over Prison Demonstration

A representative from CCA will meet with Mayor McNally on Friday to discuss the protest and “the prison’s obligation to the city when there is trouble at the facility.” There has been very little information available on the details of the protest, how the facility handled it and what exactly the ‘resolution’ entailed. WKBN has more:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – WKBN is continuing to ask questions about the demonstration by inmates at a private prison on Yougnstown’s east side Tuesday.

We’re told a representative of Corrections Corporation of America, the corporation which operates the jail, plans to meet with Youngstown Mayor John McNally Friday to talk about the protest by 140 inmates at the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center earlier this week.

The meeting will go over the prison’s obligation to the city when there is trouble at the facility.

Prison workers said the inmates refused to go back into their cells from an outdoor recreation area on Tuesday, as a show of protest against food service at the jail, among other things.

The prisoners are all now back in their cells.
