In this Feb. 14, 2007 file photo taken from a boat, the McNeil Island Correctional Center in Washington state is shown. Washington state said Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, that it will close the McNeil Island Corrections Center in April, 2011, to save money. McNeil Island is also home to the state’s Special Commitment Center, where sexually violent predators are indefinitely held for treatment after completing their prison sentences, but that facility will remain open.
