A Vermont corrections official has seen Pennsylvania guards threaten Vermont inmates at Camp Hill prison.

The state of Vermont is looking into options for the 200 inmates its housing out of state. Those prisoners have been in Camp Hill prison — a state-run facility in Pennsylvania since last year — due to a lack of space in Vermont's prisons.

Since their move to Pennsylvania, several prisoners have died. Now, it's come to light that a Vermont corrections official witnessed a Pennsylvania guard threaten Vermont inmates.

Seven Days reporter Taylor Dobbs spoke with VPR's Henry Epp.
