Bertie Prison Chief Reassigned

The NC Department of Prisons has reassigned the man who was the adminstrator of Bertie Correctional Institution in Windsor.

Anthony Hathaway III has been reassigned to the Greenville office within the Division of Prisons, according to Keith Acree, the public information officer for the department.

Acree says Willie Davis, the assistant superintendent at Bertie Correctional Institution, is now in charge.

Acree would not comment on why Hathaway was reassigned. When asked, Acree responded, "It is a personnel matter, and I will not discuss that."

The reassignment of Hathaway follows a former correctional officer at Bertie Correctional Institution getting charged for having sex with an inmate.

Tameka Mebane told WITN she did have two-month relationship with a prison inmate. Mebane says the inmate is not the father of the baby she is carrying. Windsor police say Mebane admitted the inmate was the father during a police interview.
