A former inmate of the Federal Prison Camp in Greenville has been sentenced on the charge of Escape. 52-year-old Shelia B. Hatfield received 15 additional months in federal prison, followed by 3 years supervised release. The escape charge stemmed from an incident on March 9, 2015 when she was found at a convenience store outside the prison camp’s grounds. An investigation determined that she had not received authorization to leave the grounds of FPC-Greenville.
When Hatfield was brought back into custody, she was found with a bottle of whiskey, two bottles of vodka, fifteen packs of cigarettes, rolling papers, a cigarette lighter, and three packs of gum. All of these items at the Greenville prison.
Hatfield had claimed that she was forced to leave the camp to buy the contraband because of abuse and harassment that she suffered at the hands of other inmates in her unit, though she had never reported any abuse or harassment.
