John Robert, a former correctional officer (CO) at Richwood Correctional Center (RCC) reached out to us saying he's worried about the safety and welfare of the inmates he used to protect. Robert says he worked at the privately owned prison for a month before being fired. During that time, he documented everything he saw, seeking to bring permanent change to the facility. He claims the prisoners are treated more like dogs than human beings.
Deputies say the man asked a cashier to make change for five $100 bills. He requested $20 bills, but then changed his mind halfway through the transaction. He appears to have folded several $20 bills and hid them from the cashier, only giving her back some of the money.
