(TheConservativeNews.org) – America’s correctional system is supposed to be a place where criminals go to reform themselves. The guards at these institutions should be keeping those offenders safe. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen.

A former guard in a women’s prison in Oregon pled guilty to both drug trafficking and custodial sexual misconduct in federal court on Monday, November 23. Richard Steven Alberts II admitted to smuggling heroin, methamphetamine, and prescription drugs into the facility with intent to distribute them to inmates. He also had an inappropriate sexual relationship with one of the prisoners.

The 32-year-old is accused of sexually abusing two other inmates. Those prisoners have filed civil lawsuits against him (along with other guards and prison staff).

Alberts smuggled a cell phone into the prison and gave it to the woman with whom he was having sexual relations. She used this phone to coordinate a drug deal between Alberts and the co-defendant, 28-year-old Joseph Jimenez.

Richard Steven Alberts II has resigned his position with the Oregon Department of Corrections. Whatever the outcome of his federal sentencing hearing in February, he’s unlikely to work in a prison again.
