Staff suspended after inmate hospitalized

NIANTIC, Conn. (AP) — Six staff members at the York Correctional Institution have been placed on administrative leave after a prisoner was hospitalized with an undisclosed medical issue.

Correction Department spokeswoman Karen Martucci issued a statement Thursday say the suspensions include four department employees and two workers employed by Correctional Managed Health Care.

She says they are under suspension because of “significant concern over their actions with regard to an offender’s medical needs,” but would not elaborate.

The Day of New London identified the inmate at 36-year-old Amy Rolon of Hartford, who is awaiting trial on prostitution and larceny charges.

She is in fair condition at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
