Prison guard gets four-year sentence
BRIDGETON, New Jersey - A former senior corrections officer at a state prison in Cumberland County was sentenced Friday to four years in prison for having sex with two male inmates.
Thomas Schwegel, 44, a corrections officer for more than a decade, pleaded guilty to official misconduct in August.
Schwegel's attorney, Steve Scheffler, questioned the sentence, saying the separate sexual encounters that occurred between 2001 and 2002 were consensual.
