Vegas Lost: Searching for an inmate
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
Nevada is getting ready to send a 15-year-old girl to serve her prison sentence in Arizona.
She's convicted of stabbing her classmate and sentenced as an adult in December.
Nevada won’t tell us which facility in Arizona will house her, citing safety concerns. However, Arizona Department of Corrections tells us there is only one correctional facility that can house a teenage inmate: ASPC-Perryville.
Vegas Lost has learned that Arizona is currently planning to move all juvenile females from Perryville to another facility closer to Tucson to better serve them.
