Correctional Officer Melissa Foy Given National Award

WASHINGTON — The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund on Friday named senior officer specialist Melissa Foy of the Federal Bureau of Prisons officer of the month for October.
Foy works at the high-security facility, U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton in West Virginia.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund said in a statement:
“Officer Foy knows the majority of inmates and her instincts help her recognize when they are involved in suspicious behavior or prohibited acts. She has forwarded raw intelligence to the Special Investigation Staff which has been instrumental in solidifying criminal cases against individual inmates. With an educational background in substance abuse and dependency, Officer Foy ascertained that inmates were getting a “high” from a medication which was being dispensed daily. She identified the drug and worked with the Health Services Department to ensure that the facility discontinued prescribing this medication. In addition, adjustments were made in how medications were dispensed to the inmates.”

RICHMOND, Va. — Michael Vick put family pets in rings with pit bulls and thought it was funny watching the trained killers injure or kill the helpless dogs, a witness told federal investigators during the dogfighting investigation that brought Vick down.
In a 17-page report filed Aug. 28, 2008, by case agent James Knorr of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and released Friday under the Freedom of Information Act, a person identified as confidential witness No. 1 said Vick placed pets in the ring against pit bulls owned by “Bad Newz Kennels” at least twice and watched as the pit bulls “caused major injuries.”

WASHINGTON — A witness in the corruption trial of Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) has told a federal judge that he received extensive help from prosecutors prior to taking the stand and would have testified differently had he not been given the assistance.
He also said he had an agreement with the government that gave him immunity from prosecution in the case. During the trial, he told the jury that no formal deal existed.
“I would not have given the same testimony” without the help or the agreement, wrote the witness, David Anderson.
