Two Department of Corrections officers who were fired for their alleged knowledge of a hole in the perimeter fence at the Mangilao compound have filed appeals with the Civil Service Commission.  Corrections officer Aaron Jessup and Lieutenant David Alvarez are fighting to get their jobs back.

It's alleged that Jessup would give cigarettes and chewing tobacco to inmates in exchange for phone cards.

Alvarez was fired because he failed to notify the Warden and Director when another officer reported what appeared to be tampering in the perimeter fence.

His attorney Curtis van De Veld says Alvarez has never been disciplined before in his 25 years of service and termination was too harsh.

A status call was held this afternoon and the matter was continued until DepCor's attorney, Donna Lawrence, returns to the island.  A motion hearing has been scheduled tentatively for October 31st.
