Six Juvenile Offenders Moved to Kanawha County
State corrections officials plan to begin moving juvenile offenders out of a facility in Harrison County this week. Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety spokesman Lawrence Messina told The Exponent Telegram that 16 juvenile sex offenders will be moved to the Sam Perdue Juvenile Center in Bluefield. Six others who have behavioral or mental issues are being transferred to the James. H. "Tiger" Morton Juvenile Center in Kanawha County. This comes after a court order over the summer set a deadline for Sept. 30 to have the juvenile offenders moved.
