Schuette releases Ionia prison break report

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is calling for several changes to prisons after the February escape of Michael Elliot from the Ionia Correctional Facility.

Schuette has released his department's independent report, which found six critical security failures. He is calling for a dozen changes to prevent future escapes, including manning guard towers, restoring perimeter patrols by an armed officer as a full-time post and changes to video surveillance.

Elliot was caught several days after he escaped in northern Indiana.
