Bureau Of Corrections Detainees Indicted For Having Illegal Contraband In Prison

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / September 14, 2018

ST. THOMAS — A federal Grand Jury on Thusday returned three separate indictments against K’Moi Corraspe, 24, Michael Hendrickson, 27, and Gamba Potter, 33, each for allegedly possessing illegal contraband in prison, United States Attorney Gretchen Shappert announced.

All three men remain in custody at the Bureau of Corrections where they await trial on unrelated local charges.

The indictment against Corraspe charges him with possessing a cell phone, a screwdriver and a cigarette lighter while detained at the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections on St. Thomas. Hendrickson’s and Potter’s indictments allege that each possessed cell phones while they too were detained at the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections on St. Thomas.

Under federal law, Corraspe faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Potter and Hendrickson each face one year in prison with fines of $250,000.

United States Attorney Shappert reminds the public that an indictment is merely a formal charging document and is not evidence of guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Virgin Islands Police Department, and the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections are investigating these cases. They are being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Everard E. Potter.
