Morgan County executive asks Haslam, TDOC to investigate prison issues
WVLT Friday August 21, 2015

Morgan County Executive Don Edwards is asking Governor Bill Haslam and the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Corrections, Derrick Schofield, to conduct an internal investigation after allegations of understaffing have been made by staff at the Morgan County Correctional Complex. According to WVLT, Edwards says that he is very troubled by the allegations that Morgan Countian Woody Garrett, the prison guard who was injured in the vicious attack on Tuesday, was the result of staffing deficiencies which seem to be a consequence of the 28 day work cycle aka, the 6 on 3 off shift strategy. In a letter, Edwards also challenges claims by TDOC in Nashville that attacks on prison guards have declined. He says TDOC, "has been downgrading the categorization of staff assaults to a lesser offense which undermines the respect which the inmates must have for the correctional staff." Edwards is asking Gov. Haslam and Commissioner Schofield to let the staff speak freely and honestly, and take corrective measures immediately. In a release to WVLT, Edwards also shared letters dating back to last year which express concern for the 28 day work cycle and a resolution asking the schedule be dropped.

A Rutherford County social worker has been charged with solicitation of a minor. Brandon Micheal Sopko, 27, of Murfreesboro was arrested Thursday by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. TBI Agents responded to an advertisement on a social media website posted by an individual indicating he was looking for a teen-aged girl for the purpose of sex. During the course of the investigation, an Agent, posing as a minor female, communicated with this individual and the two arranged to meet early Thursday morning in a Murfreesboro parking lot. That’s where agents apprehended him. Sopko, a Murfreesboro social worker, was booked into the Rutherford County jail on a $7,000 bond. (Photo Courtesy TBI)
