The Murray County, Georgia, scandal keeps unraveling, another prison guard goes down, and a pair of South Texas deputies are going away for awhile. Let's get to it:
In Lost Gap, Mississippi, a prison guard was arrested last Friday after being caught bringing drugs into the prison. Elena Lindsey, 26, was employed at the East Mississippi Correctional Facility. She is charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine in a correctional facility. Her bond was set at $20,000.
In Corpus Christi, Texas, two former Duval County sheriff's deputies pleaded guilty last Thursday to ripping off 22 pounds of cocaine from a drug supplier. Former deputies Ruben Silva, 35, and Victor Carrillo, 27, conducted a traffic stop using a patrol vehicle while in uniform so the drug dealer would think law enforcement had seized the drugs. They then delivered 13 pounds of the drugs to a third man, who paid them $6,000 for their efforts. They pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and are looking at from 10 years to life in prison when they are sentenced November 16.
