Frackville Reacts to Possibility of Prison Closing
RYAN TOWNSHIP -- SCI Frackville houses 1,150 inmates and employs 400 people, and it may now be on the chopping block. The head of the Department of Corrections says Frackville is on the possible closing list because of its age. "The two prisons will now be selected out of five of our old prisons, the five older prisons that are on the list that will be reviewed," explained Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel.
