|20 inmates charged in Kansas prison riot|
LARNED, Kan. (KAKE) -
Prosecutors have charged 20 inmates with felonies in connection to a riot at a Kansas prison last fall.
Pawnee County Attorney Doug McNett said the new charges are the result of Kansas Department of Corrections Special Agent Supervisor Nicholas Yeager completing his investigation and submitting probable cause affidavits to his office on Friday.
“Based on a review of the affidavits, I believe there is sufficient evidence to charge the 20 individuals identified by Department of Corrections staff as being primarily responsible for the riots and damage at LCMHF,” McNett stated in a release.
Below are names of the inmates who are charged with incitement to riot, criminal damage to property and rioting.
