LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — A 20-year-old female corporal at the NE Correctional Youth Facility was arrested Friday for unauthorized communication with a prisoner, according to the NE Department of Correctional Services (NDCS).

Carley Broadfoot was booked into the Douglas County Jail.

Broadfoot was employed by NDCS since October 2019 and will be terminated from her position.

This incident marked the second employee arrest at NDCS this week for unauthorized communication with an inmate.

“This type of behavior will not be tolerated within NDCS. When discovered, it will be acted upon swiftly. Breaking the law puts individuals at risk and compromises the safety of other staff, inmates and the public," said director Scott R. Frakes.
