Corrections Officer Acquitted of Sexually Assaulting Inmate

Posted: 11/09/2017 11:24:00 -05:00 Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A Baltimore corrections officer accused of sexually assaulting an inmate has been acquitted of all charges.

Cpl. Ambrose Obinna-Warrior's attorney, Hunter Pruette, told The Baltimore Sun a city jury acquitted the Baltimore Central Booking officer of 16 counts Wednesday after a five-day trial.

The Baltimore state's attorney's office had announced in June that Obinna-Warrior was charged with misconduct in office, assault and multiple sex offenses in connection with alleged abuse on three occasions in November 2016.

Prosecutors withheld the details of the case.

Obinna-Warrior posted the $50,000 bond after being charged and was free during the five months that preceded the trial. Pruette says his client's name and reputation were tarnished by the accusations.

It's unclear if Obinna-Warrior is still employed by the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
