FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WVNS) - A man who used to work at the Mount Olive Correctional Complex will now be joining the inmates on the other side of the bars. Toby Stover of Bradley, WV was sentenced to serve two to 10 years in prison.
On Aug. 22, 2018, Stover pleaded guilty to bribery and aiding adults in confinement. He admitted to smuggling cell phones, tobacco, illegal drugs and weapons into the maximum-security prison. Stover worked for the West Virginia Division of Corrections for 13 years.
"Our correctional officers across the State of West Virginia already work in dangerous jobs, ones for which that are under-compensated," Fayette County Prosecuting Attorney, Larry Harrah said. "His actions not only made his co-workers' jobs more difficult, but also much more dangerous."
Stover was also fined $500. The crime was investigated by officials at Mount Olive Correctional Complex and the West Virginia State Police.
