Investigation ends in reprimand, policy change

By Sharna Johnson: CNJ Staff Writer

An internal investigation into the mistaken release of a prisoner from Curry County’s jail has ended with a reprimand and a major change in jail policy.

A report of the investigation at the Curry County Adult Detention Center was released Friday.

The internal investigation centers on the release last September of 46-year-old Willie Windom.

Windom was serving time in a Texas prison but was released to Clovis Police custody to face other charges in Curry County.
