Correctional Officer Pleads Guilty In Racketeering Case

A second correctional officer pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal racketeering conspiracy charge.

Stephen Wise, 34, of Pocomoke was charged in the massive contraband and drug smuggling conspiracy at the Eastern Correctional Institution, the largest state prison in Maryland.

Wise admitted to smuggling contraband in exchange for bribes from a prison gang leader affiliated with Dead Man Incorporated. On July 31, Wise had that leader arrange the assault of an inmate who had complained about Wise that led him to be removed from the housing unit. At the time he was taken out of the housing unit, Wise had taken $1,500 in bribes for contraband that hadn't yet been brought in. Later the same day, the inmate at issue was assaulted and stabbed by several members of the Cripps prison gang, who had been paid $500 to do so by the gang leader.

The first ones to plead guilty are the biggest deal makers.

I think it's funny when the fox guarding the hen house gets bit by the snake that's also in there.

I have told you and told you and told you, guards are just as bad as the inmates.
