Alleged ethics breach probe at eastern Pa. prison

POTTSVILLE, Pa. - December 28, 2010

The Republican & Herald newspaper reports the probe began last week after the Schuylkill County prison board suspended three corrections officers with pay for undisclosed reasons.

The suspensions came the same week a consultant's internal report on the prison found ethics violations. The nature of the violations was not disclosed.

Pottsville police Chief Joseph H. Murton V said Monday he wants the criminal probe to finished as soon as possible.

One prison guard was fired in September amid a sexual harassment investigation.
