State Rep. Gloria L. Fox is under state scrutiny for allegedly sneaking a murderers girlfriend - previously bagged for engaging in sexual acts with the killer con - into a state prison in Bridgewater, the Herald has learned.
Using her State House-issued, all-access prison privileges, Fox, 67, visited convicted murderer Darrell Jones in the high-security segregation unit of the Old Colony Correctional Center with a woman the Roxbury Democrat claimed was her best aide, two prison sources told the Herald.
In deference to Foxs status as a legislator, she and Joanna Marinova, 26, were ushered unsearched into an area Marinova would normally have been barred from - a clear security breach - according to two sources.
But Fox and the woman were bagged by a vigilant guard who recognized the aide as Jones girlfriend - a woman previously written up for engaging in prohibited sexual acts in the visitor room with Jones.
Jones, 42, was convicted of first-degree murder in 1985 for the Brockton killing of Guillermo Rodrigues, 41.
Prison spokeswoman Diane Wiffin, referring to Foxs apparent charade, told the Herald, The DOC is looking into the incident.
Fox, first elected in 1984, serves on the House Committee on Rules. She has not returned multiple messages left at her home and office over the past two weeks.
Under state law, certain members of government, including all legislators, can visit any prison announced and without the permission of DOC officials.
While most state reps use this privilege to take a tour, she visited an individual, which is unheard of, a prison source said.
After Marinova was booted from the prison, Fox spent four hours and 10 minutes with Jones, according to a visitors log.
The day after Foxs bizarre visit on May 7, Jones was inexplicably transferred from solitary confinement in Bridgewater to a coveted single cell in the general population of medium-security MCI-Norfolk prison, sources said.
They just grabbed him - without his property - and went out the back door to a vehicle like he was the president, a source said.
The move side-stepped DOC transfer procedures that call for inmates to be strip-searched and temporarily brought to a transitional facility, sources said.
Wiffin would not comment on the transfer.
But another top official maintained yesterday that Fox did not request the transfer.
Marinova, a 2001 Belmont High School graduate, runs a blog by Jones in which he rails against the treatment of inmates. She declined to comment.
On Nov. 29, Jones was cited for engaging in sexual acts with Marinova the day after receiving a warning for the same behavior, according to a disciplinary report.
Jones made headlines for producing the anti-crime video Voices from Behind the Wall last year. His son, Darius Jones, 23, was shot to death in Roslindale in January 2008.
I did a quick search on Joanna Marinova and found this.
She's listed as a contact for National Organizers Alliance
Rules are for republicans and the hoi polloi, not the exalted black female democrap state representatives.
I’m certain no money changed hands over this.
Joanna Marinova. A true pigs pig. Google her name and watch the video.
