A former corrections officer at the Middleton Prison unit in Hamby has received his sentence.
Richard Avants was charged with indecency with a child back in 2011 when a 15-year-old girl came foreword and told an adult that she was victimized by Avants when she was just 14-years-old.
Avants was taken into custody at that time.
Avants has received ten years probation for the crime.
