Charges against federal prison inmates reflect crackdown on continued illegal behavior by inmates

Charges include assaults on staff and other inmates, contraband possession

BRUNSWICK, GA:  Nearly two dozen federal prison inmates are facing new charges for continued illegal behavior while incarcerated, potentially adding more time to their sentences.

A total of 20 inmates, all incarcerated at Federal Correctional Institution-Jesup in Jesup, Ga., have been charged in fiscal year 2020, with seven recently charged via Informations, said U.S. Attorney Bobby L. Christine. The charges range from assault on prison guards or other inmates, public indecency, and possession of contraband in the form of cell phones and narcotics. Two other defendants are charged with providing contraband to inmates.

“Corrections officers have a difficult, stressful job in protecting the health and safety of those incarcerated in federal prisons,” said U.S. Attorney Christine. “We hold seriously our duty to provide assistance by prosecuting those inmates who continue to violate the law while behind bars.”
