BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 25 – Johnathan Garrett was charged, as a Department of Corrections officer, with taking bribed to get contraband into the Rikers Island jail.       

     On October 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

  Garrett said he had arranged the bribes by text message with people in New York. Judge Caproni asked about the interstate aspect.

The Assistant US Attorney said that the prison phones had been used, and that they are routed throught Texas -- so, instant interstate. Sentencing was set for February 28 at 10:30 am.

The case is  US v. Garrett, 21-cr-354 (Caproni)
