BISHOPVILLE, SC (WIS)- In June 2012, inmates at Lee Correctional Institution assaulted a corrections officer. Three months later, inmates at another dorm took attacked another officer and held him hostage.
Since then, the atmosphere in some parts of the maximum security prison has changed.
"I know there's been a turnaround," said Mike McCall, Director of Programs with the South Carolina Department of Corrections. "I wouldn't have let you walk across this yard 19 months ago."
