Under Brunsman’s watch, Lebanon Correctional, known as LeCI, encountered a number of personnel problems involving sexual misconduct:
- Prior to her firing, Weiss had been suspended for groping an officer during a pat-down.
- Amy Noll, LeCI's sex offender treatment program director, resigned in January 2011 after she was confronted with hidden-camera evidence showing her kissing and being fondled by an inmate in her office, according to a prison investigation report.
- Iona Diane Cowan, a case manager, quit in June 2009 after she too was caught having sexual contact with an inmate. Cowan made admissions to state troopers who investigated. She was convicted of sexual battery, served some jail time, and is now a registered sex offender, records show.
Additionally, prison officials in August 2011 hired Dr. Timothy Heyd as Le-CI’s chief medical officer, even though Ohio Medical Board suspended his medical license from 2008-2010 for having sex with patients and perjuring himself to cover it up.
Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said there is no internal or criminal investigation pending on Hall’s case since she voluntarily resigned.
Smith added that Hall’s is the only case of a staff member allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with an inmate since Brunsman left Lebanon. “We believe this is an isolated incident,” she said.
