Roberta Bell dismissed after offering to take in Katie Bourgeois’s baby for two months while she finished her prison term

A Louisiana prison guard has reportedly lost her job for taking in an incarcerated woman’s newborn baby for about two months while the mother finished her prison term.

The prison guard, Roberta Bell, offered to take in Katie Bourgeois’s newborn earlier this year, violating the rules against giving personal contact information to inmates at Louisiana’s Transition Center for Women, which holds people close to finishing their sentences.
