Incident leads to changes at prison

HILO, Hawaii— A male corrections officer has been fired and a privately run Kentucky prison has changed some of its housing unit procedures after a Hawai'i female prison inmate accused the officer of sexually assaulting her in her cell last fall.
According to a written statement by the 34-year-old inmate that was provided by a family member, the inmate alleges the corrections officer came to her room in the Otter Creek Correctional Center in Wheelwright, Ky., between 4:15 and 4:45 a.m. on Oct. 16, 2007, and demanded that she perform sex acts.
The inmate alleged she saved evidence from the encounter and turned it over to prison officials the same day. More... Prisoner Pen Pals - Discount Cigarettes - Discount Magazine Subscriptions for Prisoners
