Second prison guard facing assault charges

A second Corrections Officer is now facing a criminal charge relating to the assault of an inmate at Central North Correctional Centre (CNCC)

On Monday, March 16, officers from the Southern Georgian Bay OPP Crime Unit arrested and charged a 34-year Tiny Township man with assault causing bodily harm. He is scheduled to appear in court in Midland on April 16.

Const. Peter Leon of Southern Georgian Bay OPP told The Mirror last week that the victim “sustained an injury that was consistent with the level of assault charges that were laid, noting the person was “experiencing significant discomfort as a result of the injury.”

Detectives from the detachment’s crime unit arrested the first corrections officer on March 7 after receiving a complaint from an inmate. In that instance, a 25-year-old Penetanguishene man was been charged with assault and assault causing bodily harm. The alleged incident occurred Feb. 9 at the facility commonly referred to as the superjail.
