Texas prison guards charged with running inmate drug ring in prison


We guess the definition of “captive audience” is pretty much epitomized by prison inmates.In Beeville, guards at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s McConnell Unit took advantage of the potential customer base and ran one hell of a drug ring, with the aid of inmates. They also smuggled in phones, because they were all about serving the customer.
How big was this thing? Fourteen guards are going to be doing time for their part in the enterprise, as will 11 other individuals. Houston Press has the full story.
