BATON ROUGE, LA—United States Attorney Donald J Cazayoux, Jr, announced today that Chief United States District Court Judge Ralph E Tyson sentenced former corrections officer ECKNOZZIO C JACKSON, age 40, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to 21 months’ imprisonment followed by three years’ supervised release for agreeing to accept a $10,000 bribe in exchange for using his position to smuggle cellular telephones to ROBERT THOMPSON, an inmate in the lockdown unit at the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center. THOMPSON used the cellular phones to continue a massive identity theft and corruption scheme involving over 60 victims and intended losses in excess of $20 million. In February 2010, THOMPSON was sentenced for his leadership of the fraud and corruption scheme, including the bribery of JACKSON, to 309 years in prison, the fourth-longest white collar prison sentence in United States history. THOMPSON is currently serving his sentence in a specialized Communication Management Unit located within the maximum security federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois.
