Description

KMOV-TV examines prison "staff sexual misconduct" in Missouri and Illinois. In Missouri, prison staffers were having sex with inmates, but even when the misconduct was discovered, there rarely was prosecution. When there was, the sentences were light. Usually the employees were allowed to resign quietly. In Illinois, the offenders were prosecuted, but the state did not report any of the cases to the U.S. Department of Justice, in violation of federal law.
