(Olympia, WA)  --  The Washington State Department of Corrections has a new leader.  Governor Jay Inslee has appointed Stephen Sinclair to head the agency, which was a center of controversy last year after hundreds of inmates were mistakenly released before they had completed their sentences.  Inslee says he chose the 28-year Corrections Department veteran to run the agency, in part because of his work establishing a program to reduce recidivism by giving inmates job skills at the Sustainable Practices Lab.  Acting secretary Jody Becker will stay with the department as deputy secretary.
