thats all there going to write about a man who works there sexually assaulting the woman????,parents whom-ever you are that have a loved one in there you must speak up on whats going on at this facility.The guards are getting out of control,you cant even go to a visit without worrying your going to get that person in trouble now after over yr.of obeying rules you are aloud to hug when you go in and when you leave but n0w they take whomever you are seeing and say it was to long a hug oryou cant hold my hand for a minute.BULL_SHIT!!!! I am a mom and youve let this go on for ever you just are bored and looking for anything to threatin these men and woman with because you are so bored and have nothing to get on them about .Afrerall it is the safest and least problem compared to any other prision right? thats because they are treated in-humane.If they smile you have a problem with that to.So you want to bitch about a hug they get once a week and my daughter has always told me we cant do long hug,because shes so parinoid she will lose everything she works so hard to do ,so we dont hug maybe more than 8 seconds.Now you are going to take her aside and tell her she cannot hug that long and why did you carress moms hand?And no your demeaner seems different what arnt you telling us????Well F-you!!!!!!!!!!excuse my french but that is wrong!! then proceed to tell her she might end up with window visits for a 8 second hug??? Give me a break!!!!!!!!!!Lets face it people weve all had a problem come up like this over nothing one way to many times and weve had suicides at coffee creek way to many times most being 19 t0 22 24 23 yrs. of age.I know a grandmother who visits and her grandaughter just sliced her leg all the way down because they had not put on her needed medication she has been on for yrs. so she gave -up.Is anyone out there going to start getting on here and have some ba..s for our children maybe its a friend or a mom or even your dad,they deserve a sentence but not an inhumane one.Im going to have to fightthis alone i guess,of course i have had alot of bad things i have wittnessed.I feel sorry for these girls especially the ones that want to do good and change for the better.They have nothing in there and the guards egos are so big..... THey have a new rule every week.They want us to respect the rules but they dont.Somebody please join this cause would if that was you or a loved one in there? would you care then?I know so many people that have had very bad experiences that go to visit and are to scared to say anything for fear they will lose visiting but mainly it will be taken out on inmate.Caught in the middle dont know what to do......

He was arrested so he must be guilty? The public doesn't realize that in these institutions all it takes is one inmate deciding to be against an employee and make up a story. They sit together in the same area day after day and get their friends to be witness to 'an incident' and set their stories strait. If they get enough inmates to tell the same story, then there goes the employee and they won, if the story falls apart and the lie is revealed, nothing happens to the inmates, meanwhile the employee is put through hell. Granted the majority of these cases are true, but a few aren't. I say let the judge and jury decide whether or not he is guilty before jumping to conclusions, isn't that how it is supposed to be, innocent until PROVEN guilty.

I completely agree. Most people seem to forget that the inmates are incarcerated for criminal activity and although abuse in the prison is definitely wrong, the inmates involved usually have a lot more to do with the activity than what is reported on. I know for a fact, many of the female inmates work hard at manipulating staff and strike enough innuendo and advances, that things likely will be taken to another level eventually if it is a weak staff member. But to come back and claim victim and try to sue the state afterwards, there needs to be some accountability for that as well. Staff who just cannot say no and get involved should be accountable, but not dragged through the mud and treated like a predator until all the facts dictate otherwise. Sometimes, the staff are targeted and victimized as well, but its never illustrated that way.

I was in Coffee Creek. My bed was in Dorm 3 right where I could see the officer control booth. I had a brain tumor that was removed when I got out but that's why most of my time I was on my bed. I watched Sgt. Jeffrey Barcenas keep calling young pretty imates into the booth and he'd sit and talk to them while the other Sgt did all the work. He did that for a few years while I watched. One of the "girls" was one of my friends. She was head over heels in love with this guy, I guess he convinced her it was real love or something. Jeffrey did eventually get caught and landed himself in jail but my question is this....WHY DID OTHER OFFICERS ALSO WATCH THIS GO ON FOR YEARS. One gray haired Sgt actually did Jeffrey's work daily while he played all day. So please don't tell me it's not true. I watched. Oh of course, I'm a former inmate so I'm lying right? "I was in there for being a battered woman and fighting back." Jeffrey was a tall, dark haired handsome fellow. He had no problem giving attention to young bored girls. I am writing a trilogy of books about my life and one them is about prison. Publishing is in April of 2014.

I don't think everyone in the prison system are deceitful, many are honest women there to serve their time and return to 'normal life', possibly in there on a wrongful conviction. I think some, sadly, don't know any other way to be accept to con, predators to get ahead and phooey on everyone they trample on their way to an easy buck.

I have watched a movie about such an employee and it was true, but the paper makes it look like the person is guilty. I thought in America, we were presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. Did this man get that chance? If it is proved that he is innocent, is there going to be a big write up in the paper, with his picture, saying that he was not guilty. Our land is changing day by day and if you think about it you will realize that it is true. What did they used to read in schools, the Bible, now you are fortunate if you get to take your Bible to school. I think the way our nation is heading is why there are so many women in prison. I used to work with Prison Fellowship and got to know many women and some of them are desperate, others want to get what they can. They may lie about someone and get some money but if they are proven as lying, do they get any punishment? Not the way I understand it, they just go back to serving their regular term. It doesn't give them much reason to tell the truth. I feel empathy for his man, as the people that may run into will they that he is a sexual pervert and keep away from him. Does he have children? How do they feel about this?
