REEVES COUNTY – A dozen indictments were handed down on Monday, more than a year after a massive riot at the Reeves County Detention Center.

Investigators say the 12 inmates plotted the uprising last January, and not long after, another riot sparked up.

Both riots caused millions of dollars in damage to the prison outside Pecos.

A trial date for the inmates has been set for March.

Construction to rebuild the Detention Center is still ongoing.
