Former corrections officer pleads guilty to sex crime
Apr 8, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News-Star
Jonesville resident Joseph Taunton, 31, a former corrections officer at the LaSalle Parish Detention Center in Jena, pleaded guilty today in federal court to engaging in a sexual act with a federal detainee, the U.S. Justice Department announced.
Taunton wasn't a "corrections officer." He was a guard at GEO Group's detention center for immigrants.
GEO has had a long history of abuse of detainees with the feds usually ignoring it.
This is a welcome change, but his employer should be cited.
