Guard charged with sex assault of inmate at women's prison

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey officials say a male corrections officer at the state's long-troubled and only women’s prison has been charged with sexually assaulting an inmate and official misconduct. Acting Attorney General Andrew Bruck said Wednesday that senior corrections officer Tyrell Harris-McLaughlin was charged in a complaint for allegedly sexually assaulting the inmate on Sept. 16 at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women. Officials say the victim was taken to a hospital where evidence from the alleged assault was collected and linked to Harris-McLaughlin. It's unclear if the officer has an attorney.
