Maury Prison Administrator Reassigned

The administrator at Maury Correctional Institution has been reassigned as an investigation is underway at the Greene County prison.

The Department of Correction says four correctional officers and one inmate were injured in a disturbance last Friday in one of the prison exercise yards. The most serious injury was an officer's broken wrist.

As the Division of Prisons investigates the incident, John Sapper, operations manager in the Eastern Region has been named interim administrator.

The DOC says Darlyn White was the administrator at Maury. She has been with the prison system since 1977 and makes $77,216 a year.

Maury has a 1,000 inmate capacity and a staff of 467 employees.

    As a officer its easy to see how the public views us when as a whole the NCDOC is a cesspool of corruption. Even the Temp. Superintendent and the assistant Superintendent are letting policy slip as they deem it nessecery. If this is what Mr. Saffer feels is his best people then its time for the Gov. to set up an investigative board to view each and every prison in the state. There are a lot of good people who work at Maury but there are a lot of bad. They are the one who side with Inmates and sneak in drugs, cell phones, etc. I dont believe in treating any Inmate badly but I do believe in using the appropiate amount of force to resolve the situation. We must remember one thing, they are in prison for doing wrong in the sight of the Law. I didnt put them there. They did it to themselves. This country needs to pull together and unite against crime of any kind. We are all Americans and deserve to live in a safe country.

    ncdoc eastern region management is corrupt beyond belief. Discipline depends on whether management likes you or not. Certain "Protected classes" of people could literally kill someone and get away with it. Basically, two ways to get rid of someone is conduct or work performance. Work performance is the more difficult of the two, requiring more documentation, and management efforts to bring employee up to performance standards. Conduct issues can result in termination on one offense. DOC's pattern is to either trump up false charges, do a poor or no investigation, claim validation of charges and summarily dismiss employee. No manager is going to "Do the right thing", because the operative term is:"Go along to get along", or "Be a team player". So no matter how strong the employees defense is, it is not heard by anyone outside the DOC until and if the employee does a level three appeal to the personnel commission. Management controls appeal process.

    Hey Bill, Someone has already beat you to it. Hope you have a good lawyer not afraid to take on the state. Correctional Officers will have their say. I'll be in court when they take the stand and see who has the nerve to lie in court against each other then. They are not all bad but some are corrupt and just want to keep things stirred up. I believe in justice for all and will see it through to the end. When you have done right it looks like they would get rid of the ones who admittedly lied during investigations the higher ups in our prison system don't know the truth because they want to cover up the problems. I hope they all lose their jobs and get what's due to them. Let's see how they would like to be treated behind the locked door since none have ever worked in the capacity of correctional officer. Quit hiding in offices making bad decisions. I've come back for justice to be carried out. You know who you are, come out and play. One liar started this mess,others followed.

    I am actually beginning a legal action against corruption in the eastern region of the ncdoc. I am interested in collecting statements, stories, evidence of corruption to assist my battle against doc corruption. Are any of the commentators interested in sharing their experiences and making statements?

    We really need to make changes to the dept. It is day camp not prison. 1000 beds should be locked down inmates move all around in areas where they dont belong. Way too much movement. The old way of operating is gone. At Maury there are over 200 inmate on back log to be locked up. Make the whole unit lock up! inmates knew they can break rules and not be punished. c/o's how many times have you wrote up an inmate and nothing happen. The inmates tell you they are not going to do anything to them. NO SUPPORT FROM BRASS. THAT IS THE REAL PROBLEM!!!! HELP US

    If Governor Bev visited a prison, she would give the correctional officers the cold shoulder, she would hug the inmates, and she would tell the Good Old Boys how awesome they are.
