South Carolina Female Prison Guard had Romantic Relationship with Inmate

A South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) Correctional Officer has been arrested after officials say she had a romantic relationship with an inmate and accepted monetary gifts.

Tajiri Ashiki Uzani Belton was arrested on Nov. 29, 2018 for Misconduct in Office.

Arrest warrants say that between Sept. 2017 and Nov. 2018, Belton continued a romantic telephone relationship with a SCDC male inmate while employed at the Camille Graham Institution in Richland County.

Reports from ABC4 News show that Belton also received money from the inmate, which authorities described as a gift. Correctional Officers are not allowed to accept gifts from inmates, officials said. Belton also provided her home address to the inmate so he could illegally mail a controlled substance to her.

SCDC reminds members of the public that after an arrest, the burden of proof is still on the state to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt within a court of law.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
