New Warden Named for EMCF

Lauderdale County, Miss. The East Mississippi Correctional Facility has named a new warden.

Management and Training Corporation, which operates the facility, says Jerry Buscher will become the new warden, effective Monday.

Buscher replaces Frank Shaw, who became warden when MTC took over running the facility last year.

The prison in western Lauderdale County has seen many problems over the years. Earlier this month, the ACLU filed a lawsuit over what it called deplorable conditions there.
