Posted: Updated:

A former prison worker has been sentenced for performing a sex act with an inmate.

Garth Trail will serve four months behind bars followed by 10 years’ probation, and he must register as a sex offender.

The incident happened in 2017 while Trail was working as the head cook at the all-female Taconic Correctional Facility in Bedford.
Trail resigned three days later.

He was arrested in May 2018 after officers confiscated an inmate's cellphone.
