FAILURE TO PRESERVE AND PHOTOGRAPH THE CONTRABAND REQUIRED ANNULMENT OF THE CONTRABAND AND SMUGGLING DETERMINATIONS.
The Fourth Department annulled the contraband and smuggling determinations because the respondent did not preserve and photograph the items:
We … agree with petitioner that the judgment must be modified with respect to the first misbehavior report by granting the petition in part because respondent failed to preserve and photograph the alleged contraband in violation of Department of Corrections & Community Supervision Directive No. 4910A … , and the error cannot be deemed harmless on this record.
