    Federal Prison Guard in Texas Pleads Guilty in Bribery Case

    A federal prison guard in Texas faces up to 15 years behind bars for smuggling drugs and electronic devices to inmates at a Houston-area lockup.

    Jacoby Derrell Randall of Houston pleaded guilty Monday to bribery of a federal employee.

    Investigators say evidence shows the 28-year-old Randall was smuggling banned items including food, marijuana and electronics to inmates at the Joe Corley Detention Facility in Conroe.

    A law enforcement statement says the investigation began earlier this year. Authorities didn't immediately say how much Randall was paid or who provided the bribes.

Hope Parker, from Greenwood, is a very social child, which is extremely interesting because she cannot speak. Born with half a heart, Hope suffered a stroke during open heart surgery that robbed her of the ability to speak.
