Jail Guard Accused of Taking Bribes

Middlebury, Vermont – December 9, 2008

A former guard at the Addison County Jail is under investigation for allegedly taking bribes.

Vermont’s federal prosecutor is not naming the guard, but says the guard arranged conjugal visits for inmate Frank Sargent. Authorities say he bilked a woman out of hundreds of thousands of dollars and used the conjugal visits to talk her out of even more money and influence her statements to authorities.

Sargent pleaded guilty to paying the guard to arrange the visits.
