Lake Region Law Enforcement Center fires head administrator

The board of the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center in Devils Lake fired head administrator Denny Deegan Wednesday after months of dealing with significant problems, including the closing of a juvenile facility.

This wasn't the first time board members tried to fire Deegan.

Even though a majority of the members voted to terminate her, the board is still heavily divided on the issue.
