Warden Hatcher And Corrections Lieutenant Gaines
Corrections Officer Bradley Chapline
Southern Desert Correctional Center
Warden Hatcher and Lieutenant Gaines had back-to-back escapes under their watch. I had warned them of serious security lapses, and officers sleeping on duty, on the graveyard shift.
My report was ignored.
In the aftermath, the prison's review board determined that the Southern Desert Correctional Center had a morale problem. All staff named in these escapes retained their positions.
