West Liberty prison worker arrested

A worker at the Eastern Kentucky Correctional Complex in West Liberty has been arrested on one count of official misconduct, a release issued Friday by state police said.

Larry V. Fredley Jr. of West Liberty is accused of conspiring with an inmate to bring contraband into the minimum-security facility, which is a misdemeanor, according to the release.

The alleged violation occurred in December. State police could not be reached Saturday to determine when the arrest occurred or what the contraband substance was. Officials at EKCC declined comment.
