Mental Health Hospital Sex Probe

North Carolina state police are investigating allegations that three employees at a mental health hospital had sex with female prisoners working there.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that three male employees at Dorothea Dix Hospital were fired Thursday as the State Bureau of Investigation looks into the allegations.

Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Renee McCoy says an internal investigation of the sex charges continues. McCoy says officials determined the employees enabled the inmates to set up bank accounts, access e-mail and make unauthorized phone calls.

Correction Department spokesman Keith Acree says 13 inmates from the Raleigh Correctional Center for Women had been working at the hospital. All inmates have been removed from those assignments.

    Cherry/Dix. I don't believe the public knows the half. It is written, "The nation that turns away from God will be turned into hell". Look around.

    When someone is in a mental hospital, they are NOT prisoners. Get your facts straight and stop reporting ignorant news. Has anyone there writing the stories gone to college?
