Former prison guard from Brewster to be sentenced for sex with inmate

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – A Brewster, N.Y., man who is a former guard at the federal prison in Danbury is set to be sentenced for having sex with a female inmate and plotting with her to kill his wife.

Michael Rudkin is scheduled to appear in federal court in New Haven this afternoon. He faces up to 10 years in prison after having pleaded guilty last August to sexual abuse of a ward and attempted murder for hire.

Prosecutors say Rudkin and the inmate had a sexual relationship from October 2007 to January 2008. They say he promised to pay her $5,000 to arrange for his wife’s murder.

They say Rudkin also asked the inmate to wait until he could reinstate a life insurance policy on his wife. Prosecutors say investigators learned of the plot before any harm came to Rudkin’s wife.

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
