Ex-corrections officer charged in inmate bribes

A former corrections officer with the Federal Correctional Complex in Yazoo City made his first appearance in court today.

Raymond Morton was indicted earlier this month by a federal grand jury on charges of agreeing to receive and accept bribes from a federal inmate and attempting to provide prohibited objects to an inmate, U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton said.

If convicted of the bribery charge, Morton faces a maximum 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The charge for giving prohibited objects to an inmate carries a maximum six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, http://www.victoryNchrist.net we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
