*Faulty locks and lengthy incarceration – not to mention having a planned rendezvous interrupted by a guard – are reasons two Fulton County inmates are in a boatload of trouble. And that’s on top of the issues that got them jailed in the first place.
Norris Speed and Jasmine Jones had been in the the Fulton County jail since 2011 and it appears they finally let temptation get the best of ’em.
In an official incident report obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution on Monday it appears Sheriff Deputy Michael Watts’ interrupted the rendezvous between cop-killer Norris Speed and murder suspect Jasmine Jones.
The two horny inmates were caught in Speed’s cell doin’ the do.
Jones, who had been booked into the facility in 2011 on murder and robbery charges, admitted to consensual sex with Speed, who was sentenced to death for the murder of Atlanta police Officer Niles Johangten in 1991. He had returned to the facility in July 2011 for a series of ongoing hearings about the case, according to sheriff spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan.
They had both been in the facility’s medical wing on May 26, when Jones was let out of her cell to shower. She was spotted by old acquaintance Speed, who admitted to investigators that he had jimmied his lock to make a phone call, saw Jones and talked her into joining him for a quickie.
Watts wrote in his report that when he couldn’t find the woman in the shower or her cell, he checked Speed’s cell and found the two of them together.
“She stated that inmate Speed popped open the side door and told her to come into his cell. Inmate Jones then stated that she was tempted and let the lust get the best of her so she willingly entered inmate Speed’s cell although she was extremely nervous,” Watts wrote.
The county is spending nearly $5 million to upgrade the faulty locks that the prisoners can easily pick using a variety of creative resources. They hope to have the work done by July.
No doubt the tryst between Speed and Jones has hastened the need for speed (no pun intended) on this upgrade.
