The new charges include:

  • engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity,
  • trafficking
  • possessing criminal tools
  • drug possession
  • prohibition of conveyance of certain items
  • bribery
  • tampering with evidence
  • perjury
  • corrupting another with drugs
  • theft in office
  • additional money laundering prohibitions

Sullivan and Thomas are expected in court on Thursday on the new charges.

The corrections officers were first indicted in August of 2019 and resigned earlier that year.

Both pleaded not guilty to multiple charges.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office said they served as couriers under the direction of two Heartless Felons gang member inmates.
