6th Md. Prison Guard Pleads Guilty in Assault

Posted:

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP)- The Justice Department says a sixth former Maryland prison guard has pleaded guilty in the 2008 beating of an inmate at the Roxbury Correctional Institution near Hagerstown.
 
Federal prosecutors say Jeremy McCusker pleaded guilty in the assault and to conspiring with other officers to cover it up.
 
McCusker admitted that he and four other officers were involved in the assault on inmate Kenneth J. Davis to punish him for striking an officer during a prior shift.
 
Court documents refer to the victim as "K.D." Davis is no longer in prison.
 
McCusker faces up to 15 years in prison. Sentencing has been set for Aug. 23.
 
Five other former officers also have pleaded guilty. Nine other current or former Roxbury officers still face federal charges in the assault.
