Leonard, TX -- Dozens gathered on the Leonard town square to protest a proposed faith-based prison Tuesday night.
The Leonard City Council went into executive session around 6:30 Tuesday night.
The council has reportedly decided not to enter into an agreement with Corrections Concepts Incorporated, the nonprofit group that proposed the faith-based prison.
Earlier this month, we reported that nearly 400 residents had signed a petition to oppose the proposed 500 bed, 330 inmate facility.
No word if the issue will be taken up again by the council.
