Vermont State Police say a male nurse is facing charges he sexually exploited a female inmate at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Center in South Burlington, the state’s prison for women.
State police began investigating the case in November after receiving a report that a female inmate had been inappropriately touched by a male nurse.
Thirty-six-year-old Thomas Njuguna of Colchester was arrested Tuesday and processed at the Williston State Police barracks. He is due in court May 8.
Police say Njuguna is no longer employed by the Department of Corrections.
