Behind Closed Cells –
Dec 23, 2019 – On June 3, Jimenez is accused of meeting Alberts in the parking lot of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center and giving him heroin, which Alberts then smuggled into the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility. “The cost of any narcotic inside a correctional facility is much higher than the cost on the street and jeopardized the safety of inmates there,’’ Gabriel told U.S. Magistrate Judge John Jelderks.
Alberts, through his lawyer Stephen Doyle, entered not guilty pleas to the charges in U.S. District Court in Portland Monday afternoon.
He’s been on paid leave from his job for the Oregon Department of Corrections since June. After his arrest Monday morning, he was placed on unpaid leave, according to his lawyer and the prosecutor.
