Oregon Prison Manager Indicted for Misusing Prison Credit Cards

Oregon Prison Manager Indicted for Misusing Prison Credit Cards

A former manager at a minimum-security prison in Salem, Oregon has been indicted for improperly using prison credit cards.

Kenneth C. Robertson, 46, began working for the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC) in 1988. According to prison spokeswoman Susi Hodgin, he had been employed as a physical plant manager at the Santiam Correctional Institution since 2004.

Robertson resigned in September 2008 following an ODOC internal affairs investigation that revealed he had used prison credit and gas cards for his personal use, said Don Abar, a Marion County Deputy District Attorney. Results of the investigation were turned over to the state police.

Robertson was arraigned in Marion County Circuit Court last November on theft and official misconduct charges; he is scheduled to go to trial on June 24, 2009.
