FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Versailles businessman Fred Siegelman has taken over as director of Kentucky Correctional Industries, a program that provides inmates with work experience intended to give them marketable skills upon their release.
Siegelman, who served four terms as Versailles mayor from 1999 to 2013, moved into the new role last week. He also owned and operated multiple Little Caesars restaurants in central Kentucky for more than 25 years.
Kentucky Correctional Industries sells a wide range of products that inmates build, including a variety of wood products, including birdhouses, chess boards, jewelry boxes and trunks.
