CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Another inmate has died at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

Nevada Department of Corrections officials say 77-year-old Michael Rose died Friday night while being treated for an undisclosed medical condition at the prison's medical facility.

He had been serving a seven- to 20-year sentence for a conviction on attempted sexual assault of a victim under 16 since September 2010.

He was at least the sixth inmate to die at the Carson City prison since October.

According to a memo provided to the state Board of Prison Commissioners earlier this month, at least 31 Nevada inmates have died in prison this year, out of a population of 13,100.

kdavis you don't have a clue! have you ever worked for the Dept. of Corrections? Probably not! I did for 26 yrs. and I can tell you that the Nevada system is not like the california system or some harder prison systems. Unless an inmate is looking for trouble they are pretty much left alone even the child molesters.Typically when you see it is a death at NNCC which is the medical infirmary it is because of an illness!

wildcat; It just seems odd to have so many dying in one year there;that hasn't been the case in prior years. What makes the past year so different? You're right though-it'd really be great if they'd try to get a bit more information before posting the stories,especially when they say they'll have more on the story when they have it,then the story is never mentioned again.

I think maybe we find out if all 31 of them had some sort of history with pedophile tendencies or convicted of it. There lies your answer. Most inmates don't tolerate them.

I wish they would get ALL the facts before just reporting an inmate has died. It stated its a medical facility. They have illness's, and diseases that they can refuse care for, plus they aren't young chickens, ect. Get all the facts before reporting something.
