Corrections officer sentenced for having sex with an inmatePosted: Updated:
A former corrections officer at the all-women’s prison in Bedford Hills will now spend time behind bars for having sex with an inmate.
Iran Colon, 32, has been sentenced to one to three years in state prison and one year in jail. The terms will run concurrently.
In 2018, Colon pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal sexual act in the third degree and promoting prison contraband in the first degree.
Colon, who worked at the Taconic Correctional Facility, was arrested after officers confiscated an inmate's cellphone.
