MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s Department of Corrections has fired the top official at one of the state’s largest prisons.
Stillwater Prison warden Steve Hammer had been suspended in September pending an investigation. He was fired Thursday for allegedly violating at least five department policies.
Those policies allegedly are related to anti-discrimination and sexual harassment.
Hammer previously worked as warden of the Rush City prison. He took over at the Stillwater facility in 2015.
