Maine State Prison in Warren is under investigation
WARREN (WGME) -- Corrections officials have launched an investigation into the Maine State Prison in Warren.

This probe involves as many as 17 veteran guards, who are allegedly harassing newly hired guards.
Two state lawmakers and a union official confirm the investigation.
A prison spokesman refuses to comment.
