A new executive has been named at Y-12 to oversee security, after 3 people managed to get inside the facility.

Steven Hafner is a senior vice president with WSI,  formerly known as Wackenhut Services, and he's been chosen to succeed the former general manager, who was let go last week.

Prosecutors say three protestors cut through several fences and vandalized the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility at Y-12 in Oak Ridge last weekend.

The three protestors, Michael Walli, 63, Greg Boertje-obed, 57, and Megan Rice, an 82-year-old nun are now all charged with wilfully and maliciously injuring real property at Y-12.
