Franklin County Correctional Center I (also known as Franklin County Main Jail or FCCCI)[1][2][3] is a 650-bed medium-maximum security correctional facility located in Columbus, Ohio.[3] The jail came under fire in March 2009 when allegations came forward that a sheriff's deputy enlisted an inmate to touch a sandwich with his genitalia, then fed the sandwich to a fellow inmate. The inmate consuming the sandwich was then shown a cell phone picture of the first inmate's genitalia touching the sandwich.[4] The deputy, Joseph Cantwell, pleaded guilty to two health code violations on September 9, 2009.[5]
