As the FBI begins to investigate the circumstances of the June escape at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora as well as broader corruption concerns, the state Department of Corrections and Community Service on Tuesday placed 12 prison employees, including members of its leadership team, on administrative leave.

The leave includes three members of the prison’s executive team and nine staff members of the prison’s security team, DOCCS said in a statement.

Assistant Commissioner for Correctional Facilities James O’Gorman will oversee the leadership transition this week.

“Staffing for the security positions will be addressed through procedures outlined in the union contract,” DOCCS said. “Due to the ongoing review and investigations, additional information is not available at this time.”

In addition to the FBI probe, the state inspector general is conducting an administrative investigation of the escape of convicted killers Richard Matt and David Sweat.

Both men conducted a daring escape from the prison on June 6, which resulted in three-week manhunt across the North Country. The manhunt ended when Matt was shot and killed on Friday and Sweat was wounded and captured on Sunday by police.
