Default Adirondack CF to become a "therapeutic community setting" 55+

The state-run Adirondack prison in Ray Brook has again been converted, this time from a facility for teenage boys to a medium-security prison for men over 55.

In 2018, the then-medium-security adult facility was converted to hold male inmates between the ages of 16 and 18. This was done in light of Raise the Age laws, which raised the age of criminal responsibility from 16 to 18 for nonviolent offenders in New York.

This year’s state budget transferred the responsibility for these young offenders from the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to the state Office of Children and Family Services. Gov. Andrew Cuomo first proposed the idea in late January in his Executive Budget.
