Jeff Limo challenges indictment against him

Posted: Jul 09, 2018 2:09 PM Updated:

A number of defendants implicated in a scheme to smuggle contraband into the prison want their case thrown out or severed. Former head of DepCor internal affairs Jeff Limo argues the government failed to present any evidence to grand jurors to support the indictment against him.

Limo, as we've reported, is accused of receiving bribes and transferring inmate Shawn Paul Johnson from one area of the prison to another.

Defense argues prosecutors had in their possession the text messages exchanged between Limo and co-defendant Ronald Meno. These messages suggest Limo didn't know what was happening.

DOC officer Frankie Rosalin also wants his case thrown out because there's not enough evidence to prove he was involved in the conspiracy.

A total of 13 individuals, both inmates and DOC staff, were charged in this case, some of whom have already pled out and agreed to cooperate with authorities.

A return hearing is set for September 6.
