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.
