WETUMPKA, AL (WBRC) -

Federal investigators are visiting the Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women as part of the ongoing investigation of alleged sexual abuse of inmates by employees.

Corrections Department spokeswoman Kristi Gates tells FOX6 News the meetings with Department of Justice officials are a continuation of their previous visit to the prison in early June.

Gates also says they cannot comment on the details of the meetings, but the Alabama Department of Corrections continues to cooperate with the Department of Justice to continue prison reforms.

The Corrections Department expects federal officials to be at Tutwiler prison through Wednesday.
