One of the six DOC officers who were implicated in the smuggling of methamphetamine into the island’s prison facility has taken a deal with the government getting him off the hook on the more serious charge.
Frankie Rosalin pleaded guilty to official misconduct as a misdemeanor as part of a plea agreement signed with the government.
As part of the plea deal, the charge of conspiracy to promote major prison contraband has been dismissed. The plea calls for one year incarceration. However, Rosalin will not be serving that time instead he was placed on two years probation.
Unlike many plea agreements, his deal with authorities does not include Rosalin testifying against co-conspirators in the case.
