PECOS, Texas (AP) - Three employees at a privately managed West Texas prison are facing federal charges of providing contraband to prisoners.
The case is unrelated to a pair of recent riots at the Reeves County Detention Center that caused millions of dollars in damage. Moises B. Martinez Jr., a case manager at the county-owned prison, and guards Jacob Guzman and Sylvia Castillo Chairez were indicted last week in Midland.
Martinez and Chairez turned themselves in Tuesday morning. Guzman turned himself in earlier.
