Correctional Care Rap Sheet

We feel there are very, very serious criticisms that need to be followed up on, said Father William Pickard, who serves as chaplain for the countys prison ministry program on behalf of the Diocese of Scranton.
Father Pickard also is a member of the regional chapter of Pax Christi, an international Catholic nonprofit group that advocates peace, justice and human rights. The idea for a review was triggered by the birth of a baby in a prison cell on July 10, Father Pickard said. Then-inmate Shakira Staten, 22, of Chambersburg, accused Lackawanna County Prison officials of ignoring her repeated pleas to go to the hospital before her daughter dropped from her womb and to the floor of a cell monitored by a closed-circuit television camera. Father Pickard and Mrs. Holmes conducted interviews during regular visits with prisoners as part of the prison ministry program. We thought there was enough of a common thread there to release the report, Father Pickard said. I could tell by (the inmates) emotions that they were sincere, that they went through a terrible ordeal. They werent play-acting. It was very obvious in the interaction I had with them. Prisoners faced possible retribution by answering the survey questions, Father Pickard said. The committee recorded a majority of the inmates names, and Father Pickard said the committee verified what inmates told them as best they could.

The cast of characters could randomly be picked from any number of prisons from Maine to California, except, that is, for chaplain, Rev. William B. Pickard.
Fr. Pickard, a priest of the Diocese of Scranton, served the prison for 26 years, often risking his own safety and reputation by advocating for human rights. Pickard wrote a letter to the Lackawanna County commissioners on March 30, 2010, four months before the assault, complaining that administrators at the prison had failed to investigate Pinto's allegations of sexual assaults and denial of medical treatment. On August 8, 2010, Pinto, in protective custody, was assaulted by a violent prisoner who was supposed to be in lockdown, knocked to the floor and had his head stomped on 15 times. His face was shattered, he suffered brain injuries and was left comatose. Complicity on the part of staff was alleged. Fr. Pickard, in attempting to visit Pinto in Intensive Care at the Community Medical Center, was detained by a guard at the door and placed on Administrative Leave for allegedly trying to push the guard aside, a charge he denies. On October 6, 2010, Warden Janine Donate announced that Pickard had been permanently banned from the prison in the interest of getting "'a fresh start." I stand in solidarity with Fr. Pickard.
