It is unclear the specifics of how Prince was using her office for personal gain but Donaldson has had several other correctional staff arrested over the last two months for drug-related offenses.
In July, Nina Rodgers was arrested for bringing contraband into the prison. Rodgers was charged with drug trafficking of meth, possession of marijuana in the first degree and promoting prison contraband in the first degree. In that incident, sources told APR that Rodgers, 60 years old, also had fentanyl but the correctional officers who found it on her flushed it because they felt bad for her due to her age.
