Hi there,

Thank you very much for your message. I am interested in all materials since the facility has been contracted to Corrections Corporation of America. I believe they assumed control of the Willacy County State Jail in 1995. I'm interested in any contracts, agreements, invoices, etc. Also, could you please clarify the terms of the associated fee?

Thank you very much for your time,
Beryl
