This series of investigations took the Times/Tribune readers inside the Lackawanna County Prison, and revealed "a history of chronic mismanagement, malfeasance and allegations of criminal activity." Reporters found "widespread misuse of inmate labor, lax security, chronic understaffing, improper sexual activity between guards and inmates and physical abuse inflicted on many inmates by guards."
