NJ Federal Prison Guard Facing Jail Time in Bribery Case

A former corrections officer with the Federal Bureau of Prisons today admitted accepting $3,600 in bribes in exchange for smuggling contraband in and out of the Federal Correctional Institution in Fairton, N.J.

Job Brown pleaded guilty to an ‘Information’ charging him with one count of receipt of bribes by a public official.

According to U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, Brown, a federal correctional officer at FCI-Fairton, was responsible for supervising inmates while enforcing the rules governing the operation of the facility. He accepted two separate cash payments – $1,100 and $2,500 – in exchange for using his position to smuggle tobacco and vitamin supplements to a prisoner inside the facility. Brown also smuggled approximately 900 U.S. postage stamps out of the facility for the same inmate’s benefit.

Tobacco is prohibited at FCI-Fairton, and inmates are also not allowed to possess more than 60 United States postage stamps, or vitamin supplements, which are not purchased through the prison commissary.

The bribery count is punishable by a maximum potential penalty of 15 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. Brown could also be permanently disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit in the United States. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 18, 2012.
