Windsor Man Charged with Public Corruption Crimes
Anthony Blevins, 43, Windsor, Wis., is charged in a two-count indictment with public corruption crimes. The indictment alleges that on October 15, 2014, and again between January 28, 2015 and March 9, 2015, Blevins, while an employee of the Federal Correctional Institution at Oxford, Wis., brought contraband items into the prison for inmates. The first count of the indictment charges Blevins with bringing in loose tobacco for an inmate in exchange for a $1,000 bribe. The second count of the indictment charges Blevins with bringing in pornographic magazines for an inmate in exchange for $1,800.
If convicted, Blevins faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison on each count. The charges against him are the result of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution of this case is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Wegner.
