Sen. Kristin Corrado responded to Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement that he intends to close the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women after his administration failed to heed federal warnings allowing abuses against female inmates to continue. (SenateNJ.com)

“The abuses and sexual assaults that occurred at Edna Mahan were the result of poor leadership by Governor Murphy and NJDOC Commissioner Hicks and their failure to heed federal warnings or hold abusive staff accountable. It’s unclear how closing the facility at taxpayer expense will remedy the leadership concerns that will persist regardless of where the inmates are located. The building didn’t fail these women, the Murphy administration did.”
