Iaian McClellan

Correctional officers in Polk's high security maximum control unit.

"Iaian McClellan of Charlotte was the first of the 12 inmates now assigned to the supermax unit. The 20-year-old inmate, who has spent three years in two other state prisons, assaulted correctional officers, threw urine on guards and exposed himself to female staff, according to a prison report.

McClellan has repeatedly gotten into trouble during his three years in prison. The 5-foot-8, 150-pound inmate has been cited for 63 infractions, according to prison records.

McClellan, like the other inmates assigned to the supermax unit, will spend at least six months in the concrete cells. If the prisoners continue to misbehave, they could spend years locked up in solitary confinement."
