Former Talladega Corrections Officer Indicted

A federal grand jury indicts a former corrections officer at the Federal Correctional Institution in Talladega on charges she accepted a bribe in exchange for providing a cell phone to an inmate. The US Attorney and the US Department of Justice Office say a two-count indictment filed in US District Court charges correctional officer 31-year-old Stacie Gardner of Weaver, with accepting more than 14-hundred dollars, sent via Western Union in January 2015, in exchange for smuggling contraband into the prison. The indictment also charges that Gardner smuggled a cell phone into the prison and provided it to an inmate in exchange for the payment.
