New Indiana Prison Program

The Indiana prison system is starting a new program in Plainfield, that aims to keep inmates, from returning. Governor Mike Pence joined prison officials Thursday at the state's prison in Plainfield for short-term inmates to announce the program. Pence says Indiana should be the worst place in America to commit a crime and the best place for a second chance.  The program being implemented at the Plainfield facility will provide recovery services and social support along with education and employment opportunities. Lower risk inmates with sentences of three years or less will be eligible for the program.
