WCI Warden to Oversee NBCI
The current warden at the Western Correctional Institution, Frank Bishop, has been named to the position of warden at NBCI, following Monday's firing of Bobby Shearin. Richard Graham, assistant warden at WCI, has been promoted to warden at the facility. Shearin was given a letter on Monday, terminating his employment, as of February 17th. The letter contained a llist of complaints about his (Shearin's) service, including failure to provide leadership, according to department policy; allowing the chain of command to lapse the point that supervisors were ineffective; and, failure to address serious staff misconduct, among other points. For his part, Shearin says he will evaluate his legal options.
