Long time LCDC warden will run prison after MTC backs out

After seeing mixed signals from the Limestone County Detention Center operator back in July, Management and Training Corporation (MTC) has officially backed out of their contract with the county.

In response, county officials have opted to allow Mike Sutton to step in and run the prison on an interim basis. Sutton served as the warden and administrator of Limestone County Detention Center for 13 years before CEC lost their contract in March 2013.

We reported back in May 2013 that Sutton actually put in a bid to run the prison under a company named Detention Management Services after CEC's exit, but he was beat out by MTC.

Now with MTC's departure, Sutton will run the prison afterall, at least for now.
