Article on Mark Cible (not his real name), the prison informant who prevented an escape attempt at the Maine State Prison last October by inmate Gary Watland and his wife Susan Watland. Maine Department of Corrections officials sent Cible out of state late last year, ostensibly to prevent retribution for his snitching. But Cible was sent to violent institutions where he now fears for his life, afraid of being identified as a "rat." Cible believes that prison officials knowingly put his life in danger because he had been an inmate advocate as an officer of the Maine State Prison's NAACP. With comments by Martin Magnusson, Corrections Commissioner; Diane Sleek, assistant attorney general; and Juan Cofield, president of the New England chapter of the NAACP.
