Alabama inmates use cellphones to post protest videos

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Department of Corrections officials say inmates who are protesting at state facilities have also been using contraband cellphones to post interviews about prison conditions on the Internet.

Corrections spokesman Brian Corbett told AL.com that inmates involved in the videos could face disciplinary action.

Inmates have been protesting about facility conditions, overcrowding, parole policies, not being paid for prison jobs and more.

Prisoners in state facilities are not allowed to have cellphones.
