CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) - The majority of inmates at the Southeast Correctional Center, in Charleston, Missouri got an early Christmas gift this year.
The Missouri Department of Corrections is joining several other states prison systems that are giving prisoners tablets.
The electronics are a part of new incentive program, so inmates who are well behaved get access to more apps. The devices are also an educational tool for offenders to get acquainted with new technology and keep them connected with friends and family.
Randy Knese has been in prison for 23 years and said he has never used a smart phone or been on the internet. He was very excited to get the tablet.
