TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A veteran employee of the Kansas Department of Corrections has been named to the state Prisoner Review Board.

Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts announced Monday that Peggy Lero would fill an opening on the three-member board.

Lero has been with the corrections agency since 2000 and has nearly 40 years of experience in corrections and criminal justice. She's currently the parole director in the northern parole region in Topeka.

The Prisoner Review Board has several responsibilities, including decisions on parole and the conditions of inmates freed on supervised release.

Lero replaces Kathleen Graves, who was named deputy director of the Corrections Departments' community and field services division.
