Waupun Correctional Officer Charged with Delivering Illegal Articles

A Waupun correctional officer is charged with bringing
illegal contraband into the prison. 41-year old Mose Rice of Janesville faces one felony count of
Delivering Illegal Articles to an Inmate. An MP4 player and a modified thumb
drive containing pornography were found inside a prisoner’s cell – and the
inmate allegedly admitted that Rice brought in the USB and marijuana to help
pay debts from a gambling addiction. 

Rice initially denied the accusation – but
later admitted to his actions. He says he never took money but did it out of
fear of retaliation from a street gang tied to the inmate. Rice could face up
to three and a half years in prison if convicted. He will appear in court later
this month.
