Curry County Inmate Phone Scam

Some inmates in Curry County figured out how to make free and un-monitored phone calls.

They figured out how to get a free line by calling the public defender's office.

That office is not monitored because of attorney-client privilege laws.

The detention center warden says the 9,000 calls made to the office over the weekend tipped them off.

Until the problem can be fixed...inmates will not have phone service to the public defenders office.

They can only contact them through mail.
