Sexually graphic e-mails led to Stillwater prison warden's termination


The top official at one of Minnesota’s largest prisons sent sexually graphic e-mails from his official account, made inappropriate comments about a female intern and verbally abused employees, according to an internal Department of Corrections (DOC) investigation.

Steve Hammer, the warden at Stillwater prison, was fired in October for violating several departmental policies. Prison officials wouldn’t comment on specifics at the time, but a cache of documents obtained by the Star Tribune through a public data request — including e-mails, complaints and interviews with more than a dozen employees — detail the pattern of improper behavior and abuse that led to Hammer’s dismissal.
