Small, who worked as a supervisor, "did knowingly and willfully conspire and agree together with other persons both known and unknown, to commit an offense against the United states," according to the U. S. Attorney Charges filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas_Beaumont Division on Monday, February 12, 2001.
"On or about May 10, 1999, defendant Bryan Small spoke to Correctional Officers Robert Townley and Jabali Yuman about what false story they could use to cover up Townley and Yuman's unlawful assault on inmates Keith Jacocks and Dwayne Owens," continued the U.S. Attorney Charges. However, the court documents did not give the date of the unlawful assault on Jacocks and Owens.
Small faces a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000. The ten year veteran of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) handed in his resignation, which was effective as of Wednesday, February 14,2001.
