America's Family Prison


Austin News Real’s Pam Thompson interviews filmmaker Matthew Gossage about the film “Hutto: America's Family Prison” that he co-produced with Lily Keber in 2007. The film airs on the program. The T Don Hutto Residential Facility, located in Taylor, Texas - 20 miles northeast of Austin - holds men, women (some pregnant), children, and infants, none of whom have a criminal past. Administered by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the country's largest for-profit corrections company, Hutto lacks proper licensing and medical facilities, and has been proven to traumatize families.
