Two Rugby jail administrators have been placed on leave and the "Heart of America Correctional Center" is on probation.

Two Rugby jail administrators have been placed on leave and the "Heart of America Correctional Center" is on probation. An inmate escaped this summer and another jumped from a moving transport vehicle several weeks later.

The incidents prompted a Department of Corrections audit this month. Besides putting the jail on probation, the department placed jail administrator Mary Richard and security director Joey Cotton on paid leave for 30 days.
