Four more Arkansas prison employees left their jobs this week, as an investigation into the use of illegal computers and the sale of inmate assignments widened. A prison spokesman said a deputy warden, a field sergeant and a document examiner at the state’s Tucker Unit resigned and another document examiner was fired.
Twelve employees at the Tucker Unit have left their jobs since the illegal activities were discovered there two weeks ago. The loss represents about 8 percent of the unit’s 159 employees. Tyler said the investigation has not concluded.
