The Leadoff - Thursday 5/12/22

WGLT's the Leadoff is everything you need to know for Thursday, May 12, 2022. Pontiac residents and leaders are worried after the state corrections department moved 171 medium security inmates from the Pontiac Correctional Center to other prisons early this year — the fear is the rest of the prison build in the 1870s will shut down too. Plus, a study of people sent to the McLean County Juvenile Detention Center over a decade finds the more times they were booked into the juvie jail the more likely it was they would be booked into the adult jail later. But its complicated.
