100 Inmates Expected To Be Charged In Northpoint Prison Riot


The five inmates indicted for the fiery riot at the Northpoint Training Center in August are the first of nearly 100 expected to be charged.

Kurte Smith, Aron Fisk, Mackenzie Curry, Bobby Hoskins, Jr. and Stacy Newell face a charge of first-degree rioting.  The August 2009 riot in Boyle County destroyed six buildings and injured eight guards and eight inmates.

Damage to the prison was so severe that 700 inmates had to be transferred.
