Default Lewis Prison being sold to private company?

Has anyone heard anything about the prison being sold to a private company and the inmates being moved? If so where are they being moved to and when? Also has anyone heard that all food visits there are getting cancelled?

Hello Paulson, this is my first time on this website and I my dearest sibling is at Lewis. I have not heard anything about the prison being sold/bought by a private company, but I will definately do some research as well to find out more about this. Please let me know if you find out any more info on this. Much appreciated!
Thank you.

Every time a food visit starts getting close, it seems the rumors of canceling food visits start up again. Especially at Lewis.

My husband told me that the co-warden was trying to get all food visits cancelled and the rec program removed,therefore no phone calls....something don't sound right to me.

i imagine now that there is a new warden at lewis we will be bombarded with rumors of changes, some may be true, others may not. no telling what the future holds, but i am trying not to get caught up in worrying about what may happen and just deal with reality. i have enough problems with what is, i don't need to borrow from what may be.

My fiancee said that there are (supposedly) reps from a private prison visiting Lewis regularly. How he knows this, I have no idea. And, the guys are saying that the first 150 get shipped out on the 10th (again, I have no idea where this info. comes from).
Like everything else on this journey with DOC, I guess we'll have to just wait and see...
But in the meantime, ask your men if they have heard anything!! Lol.
