Writing on inmate’s online wall

Writing on inmate’s online wall

The Department of Correction is investigating whether a 31-year-old inmate incarcerated at MCI-Plymouth was able to post messages on a Facebook account in his name using a smuggled cell phone.

“Inmates don’t have Internet access, and they’re not allowed to have cell phones. We can’t jump to conclusions,” said DOC spokeswoman Diane Wiffin, who declined to say if any contraband was found in his cell. One of the postings read, “Another nite in the slums. Lol.” A second said, “Doin some cell time. Watchin tv ;)”

The inmate is serving a three-year sentence.
