Default Sex, drugs and cellphones: Relationships between guards and inmates unravel

Sex, drugs and cellphones: Relationships between guards and inmates unravel SC prisons

"It was summertime in Bishopville, and some inmates at Lee Correctional Institution were in a recreation yard, catching forbidden packages as they were tossed over a fence.

A correctional officer working in the maximum-security prison's west tower alerted the control room to an intruder dressed in dark clothing throwing the illegal goods on July 1, 2017, but the notification came slowly. It's not clear how much of a delay there was, but the officer's reaction was slow enough that prison officials launched an investigation to determine if she was involved in the so-called "throw-overs."

The officer eventually gave a voluntary written statement about what she was doing before she gave the alert."

No problem. Many of us have come to realize there is a deep seeded history of ills going on in SCDC that have been blamed on cell phones for the last 5 years. This has been the most comprehensive series written in about two years. I wish they would release the report that was given to the Director warning him about the problems that went long ignored.
