We got our hands on the disciplinary write-up Susan Brock, the supposedly estranged wife of Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock, received in prison last month. As far as breaking the rules in prison goes, it's pretty lame.

Brock is serving a 13-year prison sentence after admitting that she carried out a sexual relationship with a teenage boy for nearly three years. The Brock's adult daughter, Rachel, was convicted of abusing the same boy and is awaiting sentencing.

See this week's New Times cover story on the Brock family sex scandal here.

To earn her disciplinary write-up, Brock didn't try to escape. She didn't spit on a guard. In fact, she didn't even try to "shank" anyone. Brock's infraction: she used a bathroom she was told not to use.

According to the Department of Corrections disciplinary write-up of Brock, on August 23, at about 8:20 a.m., Brock was waiting in a visitation room at the Perryville prison -- where she's serving her sentence -- to see an eye doctor.

While waiting, Brock used a bathroom in the waiting room.

According to the corrections officer who wrote up Brock, she'd been told previously that she's not allowed to use the bathroom in the waiting room.

The CO didn't actually see the county supervisor's wife use the bathroom, she was told that it happened (presumably by another inmate). The CO confronted Brock about using the bathroom, and she admitted it.

The infraction is considered by the DOC to be a minor infraction. The punishment for Brock: 30 days "loss of privileges."
