TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s prison agency says three high-ranking officials are out after internal investigations that began with allegations of misconduct.
Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services spokesman Gerard Shields said Wednesday that Steven Geppi was removed from the state payroll as director of investigations, intelligence and fugitive apprehension Tuesday, along with two people who worked for him. They are Debra Gonzalez Morin and John Spiroff.
Their departures were first reported by The Washington Post.
Department Secretary Stephen Moyer says in a statement that he received allegations of misconduct Oct. 11. Shields says an investigation triggered by those allegations led to the departures of Geppi and Gonzalez Morin.
Moyer says he received a complaint on an unrelated matter later that week. Shields says that complaint led to Spiroff’s departure.
