BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Corrections Corporation of America will pay Idaho $1 million for understaffing the state’s largest prison in violation of its contract. The agreement between the private prison company and the Idaho Board of Correction was announced yesterday. Nashville, Tenn.-based CCA acknowledged last year that its employees falsified staffing records given to the state, making it look as though thousands of hours of mandatory guard posts were filled when they were actually left vacant for months. CCA says the payment makes Idaho taxpayers whole. Prison officials say the sum doesn’t reflect actual hours, but because of the complexity of the issue, they decided it was a reasonable amount. The state has decided to take over the Idaho Correctional Center in the wake of the staffing scandal, rampant violence and other problems.
