Ex-corrections officer gets 4 years in prison

Seth Bunke, a former Lucas County corrections officer convicted of violating the civil rights of inmates, was sentenced Monday afternoon to a total of four years in prison.  

He received two years on a felony charge and a year each for two misdemeanors by U.S. District Judge Jack Zouhary. The time in prison will include whatever mental health treatment is available.

Bunke, then of Jacksonville, N.C., was convicted in October of assaulting two inmates who were in custody at the jail and of portraying himself as a police officer when he stopped a driver he suspected of drunken driving.

He faced up to 12 years in prison.

Former Lucas County corrections officer Seth Bunke is escorted from federal court in Toledo, Ohio, October 14, 2008. He was sentenced Monday to four years in prison.
Later Monday afternoon is the sentencing of a pair of men who pleaded guilty in November to misdemeanor charges of witness tampering in a case that involved Bunke.
