LINCOLN – The Nebraska State Patrol arrested a Nebraska State Penitentiary caseworker Friday after an investigation of the synthetic marijuana K2 found among prisoners.
“The introduction of any contraband into prisons puts my staff and the incarcerated population in danger. Drugs are especially dangerous due to the possible medical reactions and potential for violence.” said Director Scott R. Frakes.
“The investigation began following several incidents of suspected K2 use. I am proud of the investigative work completed by our intelligence team, criminal investigators and facility staff. I appreciate the assistance of the Nebraska State Patrol in the arrest.”
Jami Cutshall, 33, is held at Lancaster County Jail with charges of unauthorized communications with a committed offender; unlawful acts by a corrections employee and sex abuse of an inmate or parolee.
Cutshall has been a unit caseworker at the Nebraska State Penitentiary (NSP) since her employment began on July 27, 2015. She has been suspended without pay, pending personnel action.
