TIMELINE: A look at the I-Team's investigation - WSFA.com Montgomery Alabama news.

The investigation

For months, the Channel 4 I-Team worked to collect documents and recorded conversation to expose how cell phones were being smuggled into Riverbend Maximum Security Prison.

With the aid of inmate David Faulkner and his fiance' Sandy Jordan, the Channel 4 I-Team collected not only pictures and interviews to show how easily phones were getting in, but also information about a correctional officer that ultimately resulted in his suspension and an investigation by the TBI.

Here is how we conducted our investigation through the months of September and October.
