Jail contract http://wamc.org en Vermont Cancels Jail Contract http://wamc.org/post/vermont-cancels-jail-contract <p>A year after Vermont inmates at a Massachusetts jail rioted over conditions there, Vermont has discontinued the contract under which it sent inmates to the facility.<br /><br />Vermont Corrections Commissioner Andy Pallito says the Franklin County Jail and House of Detention in Greenfield reduced the number of Vermont inmates it would take from about 100 to below 50. He says at that point, it didn&#39;t make sense to continue the contract, which was allowed to expire on June 30.<br />Vermont inmates rioted at the jail last July, amid complaints about conditions at the facility.
