Pecos Prison Riots Connected To Lubbock Company In AP Report

Posted:

It turns out inmates in the troubled Pecos prison get their medical care from a Lubbock-based company.  The Associated Press cites inadequate food and health care as possible reasons for two prison riots in two months.  The sheriff there denies it.   

The Pecos prison is owned by Reeves County and managed by a private company (GEO Group).   As of Thursday night the Associated Press reported fires are still burning from the most recent riot. 

The Associated Press says it confirmed that Lubbock-based Physicians Network Association provides the health care.  Trey Farthing, President, confirmed that his group provides health care for the Reeves County facility but declined further comment.
