institution" means the facilities defined in section 1-1 and any other
correctional facility established by the commissioner of correction.
General Statutes § 53a-168 (1) (applies to Escape from Custody, §§
53a-169 -- 53a-171).
Section 1-1 (w) provides that "correctional institution" means a
correctional facility administered by the commissioner of correction.
(Note that prior to 2001, this section listed all of the existing
correctional facilities.) Whether a particular facility is a
correctional institution is a question of fact for the jury. State
v. Faust, 237 Conn. 454, 470 (1996); State v. Santiago, 240
Conn. 97, 104 (1997), overruled on other grounds, State v. Crawford,
257 Conn. 769 (2001).
