A former guard at a boot camp program at the Sussex Correctional Institution has been sentenced to three years in prison for having sex with female inmates.
Thirty-nine-year-old Christopher Peck of Felton, who had pleaded guilty to six counts of having sex in a detention facility and one count of official misconduct, was sentenced Friday in Superior Court in Georgetown.
Delaware's Department of Corrections suspended the boot camp program after Peck was charged in December. The program aimed at keeping first-time offenders from committing new crimes.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that Peck, an Air Force veteran, admitted in court that what he did was wrong.
