Yay for inmates! 

Now it will pay. The company agreed to refund more than $36,000 to the state after an investigation “found the company overcharged state entities,” NewsOK.com reported.

The investigation found that Sysco charged different prices to several state facilities and departments, including the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, county jails, juvenile centers and hospitals.

Now, hey, we don’t like to throw a word like “criminals” around all willy-nilly, but in this case, it fits. See, the discrepancies were discovered by inmates learning a data collection program at Lexinton’s Joseph Harp Correctional Center. The program was developed to catch inmates who snuck back into line for seconds during meals, but it uncovered much more.
