Video: New Warden

WINSTON COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-A new warden has been approved for Winston Choctaw County Regional Correctional Facility after recent accreditation issues. Monday, County Supervisors approved Sheriff Jason Pugh’s choice of Neal Higgason. Higgason has been the Chief of Patrol for the Sheriff’s Department and has correctional experience. He will still have to be approved by the Mississippi Department of Corrections. A recent recommendation by the Mississippi Department of Corrections and the threat of lack of accreditation of the facility due to failure to correct the issues led to the personnel changes.
