State corrections official resigns

FRANKFORT -- The commissioner of Kentucky's prison system has resigned.

A spokesman for the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet said on Tuesday that Department of Corrections Commissioner Rodney Ballard had resigned from his post to "pursue a private sector venture." Spokesman Mike Wynn said the cabinet will begin searching for a replacement immediately.

Deputy Commissioner Jim Erwin will oversee operations in the interim.

Ballard had the job for just over a year. Before that, he was a Kentucky State Police officer and investigator and was in charge of the Fayette County Detention Center.
