A mothers outrage over her sons abuse while in prison led to the resignations of several officers.
Two officers from Georgia’s correction facility had to resign when the picture of a beaten teen inmate having a leash bent around his neck was posted online on Facebook seemingly with a contraband mobile phone.
According to authorities, two prisoners from the Al Burruss Correctional Training Centre involved in the March 27 incident were transferred out while Cortez Berry, the victim, is now under protective custody at a prison in another state.
However, the names of the officers haven’t been disclosed by the Department of Corrections and it is still unclear whether they faced discipline prior to quitting, according to NBC News.
Berry is now in the Macon State Prison, Georgia Department of Corrections said.
The Department transferred the other two inmates involved to other facilities, officials said.
