Clark county community corrections director suspended with pay

Chief probation officer initially told Mason he was fired; judge-led committee to investigate



Mason denied that those conversations had taken place in an impromptu press conference after the advisory-board meeting. 

“We never had any counseling sessions,” Mason said. “If there was, I want to see the documents. We’ll see the emails he sent, I’ve sent and stuff like that.” 

Mason didn’t come alone to the meeting of the advisory board. About 10 employees of Clark County Community Corrections stood with Mason outside of an executive session of the advisory board to discuss Mason’s employment status, and also attended the meeting with him. 

When asked about the support he was receiving from his employees, Mason became overcome with emotion and had to take a moment to regain his composure before answering. 

“It just means a lot,” Mason said. “I’ve poured my heart and soul into this program, done everything I could to keep it going through financial difficulties and other things. It just means a lot to me that they were there.”

Work Release Director Danielle Grissett will serve as interim community corrections director during Mason’s suspension. 

Mason is confident that Moore’s committee will find that he didn’t do anything wrong, he said. 

“I think the truth will come out,” Mason said.
