Accused Prison Guard is Reassigned

Published: 10/28/2010
A Soledad state prison guard accused of agreeing to smuggle drugs and cell phones into the facility in exchange for cash has been reassigned.

Sergio Javier Noguera — an eight-year officer with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation — has been given a position outside the “secure institution” a day after his arrest Tuesday night, said Sgt. Kim Traynhan.

Noguera will remain at his reassigned position at the Salinas Valley State Prison pending the results of the investigation into the allegations, he said. The Salinas man was arrested about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday after he showed up to meet with undercover detectives at Leavesley Road and Highway 101 in Gilroy, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.

  1. Absolutely correct- anyone else would have been slammed into jail -no powerful union to protect them. But CCPOA is very effective and very good at what they do….Bilking the taxpayers ( yes YOU, oh taxpayer are paying for this criminal with a badge to have his job!) and creating smoke & mirrors….when will the taxpayers FINALLY say, ENOUGH?? 12 billion a year on corrections and no one is being ‘corrected’. The cops are as crooked as those in prison, if not more so.


  2. “Reassigned” we have learned means anything from sent home with full pay, to “serving time in a federal facility.”


  3. Carol, if you, I or anyone else who did not wear that green uniform were arrested for such acts, would we be ‘reassigned?’ Hell no! It would be jail with an extremely high bail amount for ‘endangering the safety of the institution and the staff.’

    At the least, paid administrative leave until a final verdict would seem to be logical….

    Wow, more evidence that the things they are trying to prevent ain’t coming from the visitors….
