Clavell not the only prison worker to turn to crime: colleague was sentenced to 13 years for cocaine trafficking and another to six years for drugs trafficking in prison.
And the same holds true when it comes to the state’s correctional officers, especially those who serve longer terms.
One of the big advantages of running jail — and running corrections — is that no one wants to end up behind bars.
When former Louisiana State Prison guard, Kenneth M.

And if there’s one thing that the $1.8 billion center has in common with the prison system, it’s that it employs more inmates바카라사이트.
To understand the importance of the state’s Corrections-for-Life project, it helps to get a little history lesson.
The LTC began operation in April 2013, and at the time was about 1,000 beds deep, or around two-thirds of부산 출장 안마 New Orleans’ 2,400 jails. Inmates who would otherwise end up in jail by the time they were 21 were instead sent to the facility for rehabilitation.
