Wyoming Lawmakers Split on Potential of a Women’s Boot Camp
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Some Wyoming lawmakers are split over the need for a state-run women's boot camp as a lawsuit challenging the state's men-only program plays out.
Paying for a women's facility appears to be one sticking point.
An American Civil Liberties Union report recommends a women's camp as a way to alleviate Wyoming's high prison incarceration rate.
A female convict has sued the Department of Corrections. She claims the department violated her constitutional rights by sending her to prison instead of a boot camp where she could seek to reduce her sentence.
She has been transferred to an out-of-state boot camp facility.
