Ohio investigates inmate's handcuffing claim

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state is investigating an Ohio inmate's claim that he was raped after a prison guard placed him in a cell in handcuffs.
    
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says the female guard was placed on administrative leave with pay Jan. 19 for alleged failure to follow agency policy.
    
State Highway Patrol records show the staff member was accused of leaving handcuffs on the inmate when he was placed in segregation with another inmate on Jan. 18 at Allen Oakwood Correctional Institution in Lima.
    
The patrol says the inmate alleged that his cellmate assaulted him while he was still handcuffed.
    
The patrol is investigating the guard for alleged dereliction of duty.
