Ill. prison locked down after guards call in sick
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — Officials say they had to put one of Illinois' maximum-security prisons on lockdown not because of an inmate riot but because dozens of guards called in sick.
The movement of inmates was limited for most of Friday at the Stateville Correctional Center in suburban Chicago.
Nearly 60 employees failed to turn up to work, an occurrence that Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Stacey Solano called "unusual."
