Camden County Corrections Officer Accused of Assaulting Inmate, Charged with Official Misconduct

Camden County NJ Inmate Assault AttorneysA Camden County corrections officer has been charged with official misconduct and aggravated assault after allegedly attacking an inmate at the Camden County Jail.

According to authorities, the 43-year-old suspect assaulted the victim on October 27, 2015. Camden County prosecutors said that the attack involved the suspect kicking and stomping on the victim’s torso while the inmate was handcuffed.

The official incident report that was filed by the suspect did not indicate the nature of the attack. However, when officials with the Camden County Corrections Department conducted a “routine review” of written reports and video surveillance footage, they became aware of the incident. Corrections department officials then notified the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, which began an investigation into the suspect.

The suspect, who is from Pennsauken NJ and works as a sergeant for the Camden County Department of Corrections, was arrested and charged with multiple crimes, including official misconduct, aggravated assault, and simple assault.

If the suspect is convicted on the aggravated assault charges, he faces severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), aggravated assault can potentially be classified as a second degree felony when the offender purposely causes serious bodily injury under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.

After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect posted a $50K bail amount and secured his release from police custody. He will have to make an appearance in Camden County Superior Court to address the charges against him.
