A 150-acre site on the edge Wakita has been selected, and an agreement has been reached with Corrections Concepts Inc. to manage the 600-bed prison if and when it is built ... [Bill] Robinson said the $42 million project would be financed with bonds.(via Right Wing Watch)
A bond underwriting company said that if a government jurisdiction will commit to sending 310 inmates at a cost of $42.80 a day, bond sales can begin, and the project can proceed.
Robinson, himself an ex-con and prison minister, said he had been working for years on the idea of an all-Christian prison, and he had invested $1.3 million so far on construction plans and other expenses.
He said a lot of prisons have faith-based or Christian units, but he knows of none with an all-Christian staff.
"The staff, being all born-again believers, will see this as a mission," he said.
"I want people to understand what it's about. It's about changing criminals into citizens."
The prison would accept only men near the end of their sentences who volunteer to come into the prison and sign an agreement to participate.
