Federal judge lifts court order on Mississippi youth prison | app

The initial court order was issued in 2012 and extended several times. In an Oct. 13 decision, U.S. District Court Judge Daniel P. Jordan granted Hinds County’s request to end the consent decree on the Henley-Young Patton Juvenile Justice Center in Jackson.
