TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Two more New Jersey prison guards have been charged with misconduct stemming from what officials said was a January attack on inmates at the state’s only women’s prison. The new charges bring the number of prison guards implicated in the attack to 10. Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced the charges Tuesday. Lt. Eddie Molina has been charged with two counts of official misconduct and one count of tampering with public records and Sgt. Andraia Bridges has been charged with a count of official misconduct. The charges stem from what Grewal said was a “brutal attack” on inmates at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women. Bridges' attorney said she's innocent. Molina's attorney declined to comment.
