A state lawmaker urges colleagues of both parties to consider prison reforms that could take pressure off the troubled Lincoln Hills juvenile facility. Milwaukee Assembly Democrat Evan Goyke (goy’kee) held a rare policy briefing Wednesday. He proposed bills to turn Lincoln Hills into an adult treatment center — move the juvenile Lincoln Hills inmates to up to ten smaller facilities around the state — cut parole revocations for rule violations that are not criminal — and bring back early release dates for prisoners who complete schooling and treatment programs. Goyke says Wisconsin is close to having to send prisoners to other states, as 23-thousand inmates are being held in lockups designed to hold 16-thousand — and he says county jails are filling more of the gap, as they hold around 450 youth prisoners now, up from just 50 last year. The Corrections Department says the new state budget includes money for a planning study and bonding for a new prison for older inmates.
