UPDATE--The spokesperson for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, Jerry Massie, says Justin Walker has been moved to the Oklahoma State Penitentiary and placed in Administrative Segregation in the H-unit in McAlester. A cell phone was recovered along with some marijuana. Massie says DOC will be asking for charges to be filed in Greer County as well as proceeding with its own internal misconduct process. This happened less than 24 hours after FOX23 News reported Walker's Facebook to DOC.

Tulsa man serving a 30-year-prison sentence for murdering an Oklahoma Sheriff finds a way to post some surprising photos on Facebook.

FOX23 News found pictures of Justin L. Walker, 32 posing in his prison cell.

Walker was convicted of killing Pawnee County Sheriff Dwight Woodrell, Jr. in 2001.

FOX23’s Abbie Alford looked into the Facebook postings that fly in the face of law.

He’s known as “Jus N Walk” and he’s a known member of the Aryan Brotherhood Gang. He’s not shy about posing with his cellmates.

Folks we talked to on the street are shocked.

“They are living it up in there," says a Tulsa man on the street.

Convicted murderer, Justin walker shows himself smoking what appears to be a homemade bong inside his cell at the Granite Reformatory, a medium security facility in southwest Oklahoma.

“He's smoking a bong in jail? In prison?" asks another man on the street.

Walker posts more photos from his bunk apparently smoking a joint, holding a bottle of booze and a bag of weed with another man.

"A pound of weed? Wow, bag of it. In prison?" says another man on the street.

As FOX23 News continues to show folks on the street the pictures cause a lot of concern.

"He has something in his hand, it looks like a knife," says one of the men on the street.

It’s a shank and he’s licking it.

Facebook shows Walker started posting pictures and comments earlier this month. He even added pictures of a girl he calls his daughter. She is posing with guns.

"What kind of image is he setting for kids? These kids that are on Facebook and you got someone that is inside the institution that is loose like that?" says a mother on the street.

Facebook shows the pictures are uploaded from a cell phone and on his Facebook page is a picture of Walker holding one.

"That's an i-Phone. It's a Blackberry," says two friends on the street.

The spokesperson for the Department of Corrections says it’s a felony to have a cell phone in a correctional facility and officers aggressively investigate cases where inmates have smuggled in contraband.

"I've heard they throw that stuff over the fence to them," says man on the street.

Or smuggle phones and drugs hidden and in their body.

He’s even told friends on Facehook how to send money so correctional officers can’t track it.

“Walmart or walgreens sell green dot cards its called greendot" money pack reload card " it will hav 14 numbers on it then text me the numbers . Then I give em to my boy that got the store.cause they take all my money that's sent in I got big azz fines and medical bills for smashin fools out. Westsidin m/fers. You aint got ta send me any thing girl I know its hard on ya'll out there.”

Since FOX23 News first reported the story Walker has deleted some of his status updates and photos.

FOX23 News was the first to tell the Department of Corrections about Walkers’ Facebook page.

The Granite Reformatory would only tell FOX23 News that action will be taken.

Although, around 4:37 p.m. Walker did post on his Facebbok  “Just chillin its count time smoking a cig thinking about today’s events.”

The Department of Corrections says it’s up to the District Attorney in Greer County, location of the Granite City prison, to file charges against Walker.

Walker could spend more time in prison.

Federal officials are working on a law that would allow them to install a jamming system to ban inmates from using cell phones.

David is right. The first thing I thought when reading this article is, wonder which officer smuggled those items in. A visitor did not smuggle bags of weed and bottles of liquor that big. Just isnt possible.

I guess fox is digging for content. Looks more like the history channel.

yeah, it's all bad. let's look at the big picture. how do you think those cell phones are getting into prison. especially a high level (level lV or ad-seg)joint where those guy's are single celled w/o hardly any yard time. visits are between glass. no human contact (unless you have a cellie). also, cell phones are very expensive at the places I've described above. $800.00 to $1500.00. then you have to have someone on the outs paying that monthly bill. have you figured it out yet? the C.O.'s are bringing them in. let's say he takes an order for 4 cell ph.'s with chargers at (we'll keep it low) $800.00 each. that's $3200.00 minus about $600.00 for the phones and activation. you do the math. the reason I said 4 phones is because most of these C.O.'s won't budge for less than 3 orders. I mean he's violating his oath anyways, might as well go for a profit at that point. so, before you guy's get your panties in a twist over what an inmate (remember they are criminals) is doing with his or her phone, think about where that phone came from.

Honestly they need to have tent cities like they do in Arizona for theses prisoners. Its good enough for our men and women serving our country, but not for these convicted criminals.In some cases they have more amenities then the military serving over seas... It makes no sense!

wtf is he doin in a medium security and why are prisoners allowed access to a computer, they have a library, make them read. for gawd sakes this is a prison. they shouldnt have access to anything as far as tecnology goes. it should be a privilage for very few just to watch the news or a movie. they made the choice to do wrong to society.....why do they feel they have the right to stay connected. i thought when you went to prison you lost all your rights......thats bullshyt....those looooooser scumbags have it better than our homeless ppl do.

goodone, sounds like the same old tired excuses to me, I have worked lots of 16 hour shifts when we were short handed, and still did my job right, that is just a cop out for lazy employees who want to do as little as possible for their pay, so you might want to stop bragging about the $12,000 to 24,000 per week overtime, there are lots of unemployed people out here right now with great work ethics, who would jump at that kind of pay, and getting to knock around some lowlife cons would be a bonus. Pretty good pay for basically being a security guard,for that kind of money, they could touch my junk and whisper sweet nothings in my ear, where do I apply?

There are alot of very valid points made here within these posts but I may be able to add a little. First off DOC is very short handed, On most days there are 4 to 8 CO'S held over from the shift before. This is every work day, you simply are not sure if you are gonna get off work when its your time to go home. This is not always voluntary, it is in policy that you cannot leave until properly relieved. This creates alot of strife for anyone who has family issues or anything scheduled. It just isn't gonna happen at that point. You simply must stay for work. Now this results in overtime pay that ranges from $12,000.00 to $24,000.00 a week. Now I am not sure that Good ol Justin Jones wants you to know that. but there it is. Thats alot of money. I say hire more staff allow staff time off to get the well deserved rest. Then you would be far more productive to stop this contraband before it enters the facility. Now, CO'S do work in units that house 200 or more offenders, thats not much security, only 1 person to manage 200 killers, rapists, peophiles,druggies and the rest of societies undesirables. Now you don't want them living next door but you don't want to pay for the incarceration either. Well folks you simply can't have it all . The sad truth is contraband does enter these facilities, staff do take bribes.(not many), Visiters do smuggle contraband in during visits in a body cavity , then pull it out to sneak to the offender. Now when they are caught they simply ..LIE,LIE,LIE. HEY THEY WERE NEVER HONEST TO BEGIN WITH. This happens like a sting operation. Now there are more staff than just CO'S. There are also kitchen staff, unit staff, claricle staff, administrative staff, chaplins , volunteers, and the list goes on. Now , starting tomarro all persons entering the facilities will be searched. This means they will (TOUCH YOUR JUNK) when you come to work. You are also required to bring in only clear containers for your lunch or other items.

Tell the C/O's to stop takeing them in and stop blameing the visiters...C/O's make good money selling them to inmates.....

I hope all the other inmates read this and realize who is they have to thank for their being searched and having all their goodies taken away. Can you say "retribution"?
