From Prison Guard To Inmate For Leakesville Officer

LEAKESVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Leakesville prison guard was caught smuggling a package hidden in his package to prison Saturday and now faces up to 15 years on the other side of the bars. 30-year-old Marcus Nelson admitted to officers that he was bringing the tobacco and cell phones to two inmates who also are being investigated. In addition to being charged, he faces immediate termination. Corrections Commissioner Pelicia Hall said that no one is exempt from Operation Zero Tolerance and that she appreciated officers who act when they observe that something does not look right. Like Nelson’s groin area where he was hiding the contraband, apparently. Nelson, who graduated from the Correction’s Department’s Academy in 2015, is facing a minimum three years and a maximum 15 years in prison, a maximum $25,000 fine, or both.
