Fall at Bradshaw State Jail

The Bradshaw State Jail made news this month when SE TexasRecord reported that Charmayne Jett filed a complaint of negligence against Corecivic (formerly known as Corrections Corporation of America, or CCA).

Jett suffered injury and damages after she visited Bradshaw State Jail in 2016 and “slipped and fell in water that had accumulated on the visitor's restroom floor.” The allegation states that he suffered pain, impairment, medical expenses, and lost earnings due to the fall.  

The jail, with a capacity of 1,980 beds, is now operated by Management and Training Corporation under contract with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. CoreCivic lost its bid for the facility in 2017 after holding the contract for 13 years. Advocates with Grits for Breakfast named Bradshaw State Jail as an opportunity for state closure in 2017.
