Former correctional officer indicted for misconduct
Rodriguez accused of smuggling contraband into jail
A former DeKalb County correctional officer faces charges of smuggling contraband into the jail after being named in a sealed indictment on April 4. Francisco Rodriguez, 24, was indicted by the DeKalb County Grand Jury last week after an investigation by the sheriff’s department allegedly revealed that Rodriguez had taken money from inmates to smuggle tobacco and other contraband to their cells. The former officer is charged with official misconduct and introduction of contraband.
