“STOP THE VIOLENCE, WARDEN DAVENPORT MUST GO”!!
The Warden Davenport beating
Davenport picked up the phone the morning of April 13, 2012, called a top ADOC investigations administrator, and confessed to punching the inmate.
Since he self-reported the incident, it was never investigated, an ADOC spokeswoman said.
Davenport took over in 2010 as St. Clair warden after working as a warden at Easterling and Fountain correctional facilities. Earlier, he was a deputy warden at Camden Community Based Facility and a captain at Tutwiler.
The number of reported assaults at St. Clair has more than quadrupled since Davenport arrived. There were 101 reported assaults in the prison last year; there were 23 in 2010.
