Share/Save/Bookmark

WASHINGTON — A former corrections officer at a Maryland prison has been sentenced to five years in prison on civil rights and conspiracy offenses in connection with the beating of an inmate.

James Kalbflesh, a former correctional officer at the Roxbury Correctional Institution in Hagerstown, Maryland, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Washington.

A federal jury convicted Kalbflesh in February of conspiring with other officers to violate the civil rights of Kenneth Davis at Roxbury in 2008. Davis suffered a broken nose, back and ribs from a series of assaults after Davis punched a guard.

Prosecutors say 16 former correctional officers have been convicted in the incident.
