Prison guard pleads guilty to bribery at private detention facility in Conroe

According to an article from the Associated Press, a guard at GEO Group operated Joe Corley Detention Facility in Conroe, Texas pleaded guilty to bribery of a federal employee. 28-year-old Jacoby Derrell Randall admitted to smuggling food, marijuana, and electronics, all banned items to detainees at the facility.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Randall sneaked food into the facility for $100 each occurrence, and later an MP3 player for $200.

Private prisons in Texas have been known for bribery scandals in the past: In January 2017, two former private prison guards pleaded guilty to charges of bribery from their time working at the Willacy County Regional Detention Facility. In 2015, the former warden of the privately operated East Hidalgo Detention Center was arrested in a complex bribery scandal.
