WA prisons ask Facebook to disable inmate accounts
Washington prison officials asking Facebook to disable inmate accounts
By The Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) ' Washington prison officials have asked social media giant Facebook to disable inmate accounts.

Department spokesman Chad Lewis says inmates are not allowed to have Internet access. He says Facebook accounts are sometimes set up by relatives or by inmates with contraband cell phones.

Lewis tells Northwest News Network (http://n.pr/qXV4uk ) that so far the communications have mostly been with friends and family and not for criminal activity. But the department is asking Facebook for the same deal the company recently struck with California prisons, where some sinister activity had been alleged.



California officials say they found an inmate who used social media to track down his victim.
