2 women working at Arkansas prison, inmate had sex, letter says

Contractors face charges of assault

Two women who were "contracted health providers" at an Arkansas prison were charged Thursday with sexual assault of an inmate.

According to filings in Izard County Circuit Court, Adam Hill, 39, sent a letter to the Arkansas Department of Correction on May 24 saying the women had sex with him while he was an inmate at the North Central Unit in Calico Rock in late 2016.

Hill was assigned as an infirmary porter at the time, according to a probable-cause affidavit from Dennis Simons, a special agent with the Arkansas State Police.

Carol F. Johnson, 54, of Mountain Home, and Sarah M. Crawford, 43, of Golden, Colo., were charged as a result of the state police investigation.

Johnson admitted Tuesday to performing oral sex on Hill on his birthday, Sept. 9, 2016, according to the affidavit.

Crawford admitted Wednesday to having intercourse with Hill, according to an affidavit from Simons in that case. Hill told police the intercourse occurred Aug. 14, 2016.

According to Arkansas Code Annotated 5-14-126, a person commits sexual assault in the third degree if he engages in intercourse or "deviate sexual activity" with someone who isn't his spouse while "contracted with or otherwise providing services, supplies or supervision to an agency maintaining custody of inmates" in an Arkansas prison or jail.

Johnson and Crawford are no longer employed as contracted workers for the Arkansas Department of Correction.

Bench warrants were issued Thursday for the arrest of Johnson and Crawford. Bail was set at $5,000 for each woman.

Bill Sadler, a spokesman for the state police, said he couldn't release Hill's letter because the case is still under investigation.

Hill remains incarcerated in the state Department of Correction, but he's now in the Grimes Unit in Newport. His current prison sentence history includes convictions for theft of property, residential burglary, fleeing, forgery, theft by receiving, delivery or possession of a controlled substance, and fraudulent use of a credit card.

What a crock. This makes a mockery of the victims these laws were put in place to protect. If the women were prison guards in charge of this guy and he claimed they required sex for protection or food or some other basic right, that would be an actual victimization claim. But this guy got a BJ on his birthday from a "contracted health provider." He's no more a victim than she is a criminal.

Guess they tied him up and had their way with him. “Just say no”. I doubt he was damaged in any way.

There's no payday here unless the former correctional employee is rich because neither the ADC nor the medical provider can be held liable.
