On April 30, 2020, a former Education Specialist previously assigned to the Federal Correctional Institution Aliceville (FCI Aliceville) in Alabama, pleaded guilty to two counts of deprivation of rights under color of law and one count of false statements. Adrian Stargell pleaded guilty in the Northern District of Alabama. According to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, on or about September 18, 2017, October 1, 2017, and November 6, 2017, Stargell engaged in sexual activity with a female inmate without her consent. Additionally, on multiple occasions from in or about May 2016 through in or about April 2018, Stargell engaged in sexual activity with a second female inmate without her consent. In each instance, Stargell, while acting under color of law, willfully deprived the inmate of their right not to be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, which includes the right to be free from nonconsensual sexual contact by those acting under color of law. Also according to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, on or about July 25, 2018, Stargell knowingly made material false statements to DOJ OIG agents when he denied having sexual contact with female inmates. The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Atlanta Area Office.
