Description

This investigative reporting exposed the broad reach and the real effects of violent convicts waging digital attacks from inside prison using smuggled smartphones and social media, prompting a new push for change among state and federal lawmakers. Since no statistics exist to quantify how smuggled cellphones are being used when they make it behind bars, this reporting required extensive research with prison guards, wardens and other workers at lockups statewide.
