An employee with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services is under investigation after being charged with smuggling contraband into the Grady County Jail.

Angela Calhoun, 50, has been under investigation since February 13 when a lieutenant with the Grady County Criminal Justice Authority discovered an inmate by the name of Deangelo Stefani had been receiving contraband, including cigarettes, into the jail. The lieutenant later discovered Calhoun had been visiting Stefani on a regular basis.

An affidavit filed in Grady County District Court states the following:

“Each time Calhoun visited, she would inform GCCJA staff she was with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, and needed Stefani to sign papers.”

A closer look at Calhoun later revealed Stefani was not the only inmate Calhoun was in communication with.

According to the affidavit, the lieutenant reports, I have also found that Calhoun has been releasing confidential DHS child welfare information to federal inmate Tyron Baker, with regard to the whereabouts of his children.

Calhoun was eventually confronted by investigators. She did not reveal her connection to Baker, but told investigators she knew Stefani through her brother Eric Steiner. She also told detectives that Stefani and Steiner were involved in robbing a bank together.

A DHS spokesperson tells FOX 25 Calhoun has been suspended with pay and the Office of Inspector General is conducting an internal investigation. Depending on what the OIG finds, additional criminal charges could be filed.
