ALEXANDRIA — A former prison guard has been sentenced to five years in prison for having sex with an inmate, then lying about it to the FBI.
John Charles Roberts, 43, who once worked at the Winn Correctional Center, coerced a male inmate to perform oral sex with the threat of confining him with dangerous inmates, prosecutors alleged.
U.S. District Judge Dee Drell on Friday also fined Roberts $5,000.
The incident took place in December 2001, authorities said. The inmate has a civil suit pending against Roberts.
