Ex-Rikers Guard Pimped ‘Copstitutes’ To Inmates
[su_r_sky_ad]The NY Daily News teases a new tell-all by a crooked corrections officer:
A disgraced former correction officer — convicted of smuggling drugs onto Rikers Island — claims in a sensational new book that he also pimped out a trio of female colleagues to inmates and jail bosses.
Gary Heyward called the jailhouse sex workers “copstitutes” — law enforcement officers who turned tricks. His illicit hustle behind bars earned him so much cash, his city job was merely icing on the cake.
On a typical day, he’d show up for work at Rikers with a laundry list of dreams to grant.
“I had orders for coke, liquor, cell phones and cooch,” he wrote in “Corruption Officer.”
Heyward was sentenced in 2006 to two years in prison after admitting to attempting to sell cocaine to an inmate and providing another with a cell phone for $500. The former Marine penned the memoir while incarcerated.
Correction officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment on the book, but in published reports they blasted Heyward’s tome as a work of exaggeration that taints the reputation of the department.
Got news for ya, Sparky: even if only 1/20th of the claims are true, the department’s reputation remains tainted.
