Default Springfield FMC Employee charged with Murder for Hire

Prosecutors have charged a correctional officer at the U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield with hiring someone to kill his wife's ex-husband...

...According to an affidavit filed in support of today’s criminal complaint, Jones contacted an inmate at the federal medical center and asked him to assist in hiring a hit man to murder his wife’s ex-husband (referred to as “John Doe” in public court documents). Jones was aware that the inmate had been in a leadership position in a drug-trafficking organization, the affidavit says, and had connections to individuals who could carry out such a request.

The inmate, who was cooperating with investigators, met with Jones for 10 to 15 private conversations in March and April 2012, the affidavit says. Jones allegedly offered to give the inmate a cell phone to call a hit man, avoiding the possibility of the conversation being recorded if the call were placed on a landline at the prison...

...An undercover FBI agent posed as a hit man named Chuey, the affidavit says, and the inmate gave Jones a telephone number to contact Chuey. Jones allegedly contacted Chuey and made arrangements to meet in the food court located inside the Battlefield Mall in Springfield this morning. At that meeting, the affidavit says, Jones told the undercover agent he would pay him $1,500 to murder John Doe and provided the undercover agent with a photograph of John Doe, his home address, and $1,500 in cash....

I KNOW!!! I don't know what the average hitman charges.....but I think there would be a lot more hits at $1500. a pop!!!
And I wonder what the prisoner was promised by the CO for a name and number!
I wonder if the prisoner gets a considerable rule 35 reduction for saving John Doe's life!
I guess the CO is couchless now.

I guess at that point, the inmate was in on setting up the C.O. so probably quoted a low figure so he'd go for it. That should have been a clue to him...

I must have missed the news that day, the Fed Med Center isn't in the news here much. The most recent news I heard about the prison, was that man who shot and killed many people in AZ, and then of course John Gotti. I guess the CO's are as sick as the inmates!!!!!
