MTC names new administrators for prison

Erin Taylor
Miner Staff Reporter

KINGMAN - Management and Training Corporation has named a new complex administrator and warden for the Hualapai unit for the state prison.

Jerry Sternes is the new complex administrator, while Neil Turner is the new warden for the Hualapai unit. Both are said to have some 20 years experience in the corrections field.

They replace former Complex Administrator Darla Elliott and Hualapai Unit Warden Lori Leader, who left the facility in the weeks following the July 30 escape of three inmates. MTC has declined comment as to whether Elliott and Leader are eligible to be rehired elsewhere in the company. MTC Vice-president Al Murphy had been acting as complex administrator in the interim.

Sternes is a former warden with the Illinois Department of Corrections and the Arizona Department of Corrections. He recently retired as the complex administrator at the 5,000-bed Arizona State Prison Complex in Yuma, which is operated by the state and not a private company.

Turner is a former employee with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. He was the deputy warden of operations at the Lake Erie Correctional Institute and was later promoted to be MTC's first warden of the North Coast Correctional Treatment Facility in Grafton, Ohio. He left MTC for another position with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction before returning for this position.

Both new appointees are expected to be onsite and begin their positions in mid-October.

MTC and their sister company CCA need to be chased out of the state. For profit prisons are a stupid concept as evidenced by the escape of three murderers that resulted in kidnappings, shoot-outs with police and the murder of an elderly couple. Shut 'em down and get them out of our state - and while we're at it let's dump the idiots who lied to us by bringing them here in the first place, you know the ones: Little Ronnie "I'm The King" Walker, Buster "MTC Employee of the Year for 2006" Johnson and Tom - jeeze, will somone wake him up, again - Sockwell. They lied - people died - get rid of them.
