TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Federal officials have removed four female inmates serving federal sentences from the state-operated Topeka Correctional Facility. The Federal Bureau of Prisons arrived Thursday to take the prisoners away. The action comes after the U.S. Department of Justice released a report in September concluding there was widespread sexual abuse of inmates at the Topeka prison. However, a spokesman for the Kansas Department of Corrections says federal officials didn't given any explanation for the decision to remove the inmates. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that a spokesman for the federal Bureau of Prisons declined to say why the inmates were transferred to other prisons. The Topeka prison is the only state prison for women in Kansas.
