SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A new report lays out a litany of allegations against California prison guards and state parole agents, including accusations that a parole agent solicited one of his parolees to kill another.
The report by the independent inspector general of the state corrections department says numerous corrections department employees allegedly had sex with inmates, including juveniles.
Among the 278 cases of alleged misconduct was that of a prison guard suspect of carousing regularly with prisoners, even joining them as they drank a form of inmate-made booze.
The abuses highlighted in the reports produced every six months raise questions about how effectively the state prison system hires and polices its sworn peace officers.
Neither the corrections department nor the union representing prisons guards immediately commented Wednesday on the most recent report, which detailed cases that were closed during the second half of 2012.
