Sex offenders to be sent to Otero County facility
Violent offenders, including sex offenders, may soon be moving to Otero County.
According to the New Mexico Department of Corrections, nearly 300-offenders may be transferred to the Otero County Facility as soon as next month in order to save money and provide better treatment to sex offenders.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that lawmakers are in doubt about putting sex offenders inside a county jail.
New Mexico prison officials say they are confident it will be secure.
