LARGO - Detectives have charged a corrections officer with drug trafficking.
They say 24-year-old Kevin Rix smuggled drugs into the Largo Road Prison and sold them to inmates.
Rix was charged with unlawful compensation, introducing contraband into a prison system, and trafficking in cocaine.
"We are determined not to have the integrity of the department undermined by this sort of individual," said Department of Corrections Secretary James R. McDonough."
Sorry. Cats out of the bag, horse is out of the barn...insert appropriate cliche here...
The integrity. Of your department. WAS undermined. Closing eyes, snapping fingers, wishing and hoping doesn't make nasty man go away.
