A former state correction officer pleaded guilty to depriving an inmate of his constitutional rights.
Aaron Finn, 36, admitted to assaulting an inmate at the Green Haven Correctional Facility in Dutchess County while the inmate was restrained with handcuffs.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said the incident took place in March 2020.
Officials say Finn used his body to press a handcuffed inmate face-first against a wall, and then repeatedly struck the back of the inmate's head, causing the inmate's head to hit a cinder block wall.  
They say Finn then repeatedly thrashed the inmate's head against steel cell bars. After the assault, the victim required stitches to multiple lacerations on his face and head.
Finn, a Hyde Park resident, could face up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced.
