Pyote TYC to Remain Open

PYOTE - The Texas Youth Commission facility in Pyote will be staying open, but in a trimmed down capacity.

Ward County Judge Greg Holly tells NewsWest9 the facility will be losing some 75 jobs but will not close. The affected workers will be able to transfer to other TYC facilities or area prisons.

The Pyote TYC has been under fire for the past two years after two former guards were accused of having sexual relationships with juvenile inmates.
