New commissioners hold their first meeting of 2009 - 2009-01-07
In other business, Grant County Detention Center Administrator Tom Moffett reported to the commission on the status of the Second Chance drug rehabilitation center in Albuquerque that has housed inmates from Grant County.
Referrals to the center have been put on hold, Moffett said, since its lease with the city of Albuquerque has been threatened with termination. One Grant County defendant sentenced to Second Chance remains there, and will be sent to prison following completion of the program. "We have suspended placement until the dust settles,' he said.
