Morgan County Correctional Complex: Security Staff Discover Breach
TN Department of Corrections/Peg Broadcasting News Friday January 26, 2018

Tennessee Department of Correction security staff at Morgan County Correctional Complex have uncovered an attempt to introduce contraband into the facility by inmate Robert Fusco. While the investigation is ongoing, the Department has collected evidence that Fusco, who was a minimum security inmate, breached the secure perimeter of the facility. Although this case is highly unusual, it appears that the inmate was not trying to flee custody but was in fact attempting to introduce contraband into the facility. The Department anticipates Fusco being charged with escape due to purposefully breaching perimeter security.
