DOJ Boots Warden Of Epstein’s Manhattan Federal Jail

ABC News reports:

The warden of the federal jail in New York City where wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein killed himself was reassigned out of that post on Tuesday by Attorney General William Barr, the Justice Department said.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons also placed two staffers at the Metropolitan Correctional Center who had been assigned to Epstein’s cell unit on administrative leave pending ongoing investigations into the death of the accused child sex trafficker Epstein’s.

“Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant,” said Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec. Replacing Shirley Skipper-Scott as warden of the MCC is James Petrucci, who had been warden of the federal prison in Otisville, New York.
