Rikers Island Officer Gets 29 Months For Smuggling Contraband To Her Bloods Member Boyfriend

Krystle Burrell, 36, smuggled two cell phones to Terrae Hinds, 30, in 2021, while he was incarcerated in Rikers on a gun case. While awaiting sentencing after her arrest, Burrell found a way to smuggle even more contraband to him as a private citizen, according to federal prosecutors. Burrell was a six-year veteran of the city Correction Department when she slipped him the cell phones in 2021. She also helped Hinds, a member of the Bloods, sell contraband to other inmates, taking payments on his behalf and raking in $9,780 in bribes. On Tuesday, a Brooklyn Federal Court judge sentenced her to 29 months behind bars. In a teary-eyed admission, Burrell apologized to U.S. District Court Judge Kiyo Matsumoto and pleaded for forgiveness.
