ELKTON, Ohio (WJW)– A corrections officer at the Federal Correctional Institute in Elkton, Ohio is facing charges after authorities say he provided banned items to inmates.

Williams joined others in a scheme to smuggle tobacco and cell phones into the prison and sell them to inmates, according to the indictment. Payments were made through a phone application.
Williams worked at the prison from March 2020 to January 2021.
