The Tennessee Department of Commence and Insurance opened a formal investigation of a complaint against Providence Community Corrections (PCC). The company handles misdemeanor and traffic probation in Rutherford County. The Tennessean reports PCC and Rutherford County are named in a federal racketeering lawsuit that alleges “the probation system punishes people living in poverty by charging fees and creating a never-ending cycle of probation.” PCC, which changed its name in November to Pathways Community Corrections, denies any wrongdoing.
