Utah Private Corrections Center Employees under Federal Indictment for Evidence Tampering

A federal investigation resulted in criminal charges against two employees of a Salt Lake City, Utah corrections center for federal prisoners.

A federal probe targeted Cornell Community Corrections Center, a private corporation that contracts to house prisoners who are released from prisons outside Utah. The Center also provides services to detainees who are released pending trial and federal probationers.

Center employees William Lynn Appawora, and Larry Lee Jensen, were accused of tampering with urine test records. Each of them was indicted on a charge of destruction, alteration or falsification of a record in a federal investigation. Both men face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
