Problems Pile Up at Hutto: Employee Fired for Inappropriate Contact

On top of the protests, the international criticism, and the lawsuits, now Corrections Corporation of America has fired a Hutto employee for "inappropriate contact with a detainee," according to KXAN (they've also posted video). KXAN is provocatively saying that there is "much more to the story," but not saying what that "more" is.

While it is appropriate for CCA to be taking action to protect this prisoner from their staffer, this incident is yet another instance of this prison bringing misery into people's lives. More on this as we learn more. I'm sure this awful incident will come up at the June 23rd protest at Hutto.
