Caught On Camera! Arien L’Italien, 23, and Karla Wilson, 25, breached maximum security unit. L’Italien sneaked into Wilson cell block where they allegedly had sex! This jail is maximum security, why should these two take the blame? I think the correction officers should be held accountable for this one. Check out the bizarre story and photos of the inmates below…

The inmates involved in the wild activity were identified as Arien L’Italien, 23, and Karla Wilson, 25. L’Italien is a federal inmate being held for probation violation. He was arrested in Portland in late January after allegedly firing a handgun at U.S. Marshals as they attempted to arrest him. Wilson is awaiting trial for four counts of gross sexual assault and two counts of aggravated assault. Both inmates’ cells were allegedly on the same level of the “maximum” security unit, separated by a walkway and two security doors.
The breach was detected shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday, when a corrections officer on the overnight shift spotted L’Italien crawling on the floor of the unit’s second level, apparently trying to get from one cellblock to another unnoticed. A check of recorded video surveillance footage showed that L’Italien entered the women’s maximum security cell block about an hour earlier and was on his way back to his own cell block. He had to maneuver through four doors to gain access to Wilson’s cell in the women’s cell block. Corrections officers at the jail perform visual and welfare checks on every occupied cell every 15 minutes.
L’Italien, however, arranged his bunk to look as though he were in it and had manipulated the lock on his cell in a manner that went undetected by officers. Wilson manipulated the lock on her cell in the same manner in anticipation of L’ltalien’s visit. Investigators said they believe that the two inmates know each other through friends and were interested in a sexual encounter. A preliminary investigation showed that L’Italien had somehow communicated with Wilson through the jail ventilation system and arranged for her to manipulate the lock on her cell door so the door would not lock completely. L’Italien then sneaked out out of his cell block and into Wilson’s, where authorities believe the two had consensual sex. L’ltalien now is being held in the facility’s ‘super max,’ while Wilson is being segregated in the intake unit. A review of video footage and an examination of the two cell blocks suggest that the location and design of the corrections officers’ station, as well as ‘some lack of attention to detail’ by the officers on duty at the time, played a major role in the security breach.
