Former CCA Captain and Texas Probation Officer Pleads Guilty

On October 25, 2001, Jason Driskell, 27, a former captain at the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) operated Whiteville Correctional Facility (WCF) in Tennessee, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice charges in federal court. Driskell admitted that in 1999 he struck and injured prisoner Sammy Everett at the prison, and then persuaded a guard to write a report claiming the attack was in self-defense.

CCA, the largest private prison company, operates the WCF, which houses mostly prisoners from Wisconsin.

After the attack, Driskell moved to Lovelady, Texas, where he became a probation officer. He was scheduled for sentencing on January 18, 2002.
