Pa. prison guard sentenced on inmate sex charges

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — A suspended Pennsylvania state prison guard will serve time behind bars on charges he forced an inmate to perform sex acts on him.

The Centre Daily Times reports ( 55-year-old Marlin Freeman of Ramey, Clearfield County, was sentenced Thursday to 11 1/2 months to 23 1/2 months in the Centre County Correctional Facility.

State police say Freeman forced an inmate to perform sex acts in the chapel of the state prison at Rockview from 2009 to 2012.

They say Freeman threatened to take away the inmate’s janitorial job or have him placed in solitary confinement if he didn’t comply.

Corrections Department officials suspended Freeman without pay and said they would make a decision on his employment status after the sentencing. Officials could not provide an immediate update Thursday.
