Ex-Honolulu guard sentenced for inmate sex abuse

By Associated Press


A former correctional officer is going to prison for one year and eight months for sexually abusing an inmate.

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Oki Mollway sentenced Richard Seaman today. She also ordered him to pay a $3,000 fine and serve three years of probation.

Seaman last year pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a ward. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss four other counts in exchange for his plea.

According to the plea agreement, Seaman had sex with an inmate while supervising female inmates working in the commissary. FBI agents arrested him at the detention center after the woman saved his DNA on her shirt and turned it in to investigators.

Defense attorney William Harrison says Seaman resigned from his job after he was arrested.

Reminds me of the infamous stain on Monica Lewinsky's jacket. And Bill Clinton KNEW he was in trouble. Only then did he "come" clean with his sexual antics. And remember his famous line, "I did NOT have sexual relations with that woman"? How laughable!
