WASHINGTON (AP) — The outgoing director of the Bureau of Prisons has been subpoenaed to testify earlier than a Senate committee analyzing abuse and corruption within the beleaguered federal company.
Michael Carvajal was served a subpoena to look at a listening to later this month. The subpoena was introduced Monday by Sen. Jon Ossoff, the chairman of the U.S. Senate Everlasting Subcommittee on Investigations.
The committee’s subpoena follows an investigation by The Related Press exposing systemic points within the company, together with widespread legal exercise by employees and rampant sexual assault at a girls’s jail in California.
The Justice Division introduced final week it was changing Carvajal with Colette Peters, the director of Oregon’s jail system. That announcement happened seven months after Carvajal submitted his resignation amid mounting strain from Congress after the AP’s investigation.
Ossoff and Sen. Ron Johnson, the committee’s high Republican, mentioned the subpoena was issued after the Justice Division refused to make Carvajal out there to testify voluntarily.
