In the past week we have heard from several different employees at the Adams County Correctional Center in Natchez, Mississippi and several of the allegations we have been forwarded sound very familiar to ones we have heard before. These allegations of misconduct all revolve around the facilities Warden Vance Laughlin. Readers of this blog will likely recognize that name as the name of a former warden of Stewart Detention Center.
Starting in about a week we will be running a blog every day or so concerning past and present allegations about Vance Laughlin and the facilities he is or has been the Warden of. We will also be contacting the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Correctional Programs Division in Central Office who provide oversight for privately-operated facilities as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General as necessary with copies of the allegations that we blog about.
The conversations I have had this last week with Adams County Correctional Facility present and former employees have been very informative. Adams County employees should feel free to keep contacting me with your concerns.
We know that Warden Laughlin is under a lot of stress and we hate to add to it. In the interest of fairness I will not print these blogs if Vance chooses to resign from CCA and send this humble blog a copy of his letter of resignation. Please keep in mind that all opinions expressed here are just that. Please cross check anything you read before forming your own opinion.
