LINCOLN — The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services will terminate an employee who was arrested for unauthorized communication with a prisoner.
Carley Broadfoot, 20, a corporal at the Nebraska Correctional Youth Facility, was arrested and taken to the Douglas County Jail on Friday. According to the Corrections Department, unauthorized communication with a prisoner is a Class IV felony.
“This type of behavior will not be tolerated within NDCS. When discovered, it will be acted upon swiftly,” Director Scott Frakes said. “Breaking the law puts individuals at risk and compromises the safety of other staff, inmates and the public.”
Broadfoot had been working with the Corrections Department since October 2019.
