A former Kentucky prison guard who was charged with sexually abusing women inmates was sentenced to probation without any jail time on Monday.
In 2011, the Kentucky State Police arrested Officer Sergeant James B. Johnson, and charged him with 25 counts of sexual abuse, trafficking controlled substances, and 50 counts of official misconduct.
An investigation by the State Police determined that Johnson had been supplying drugs and sexually abusing inmates at Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women in Peewee Valley.
On Monday, the 54-year-old former prison guard accepted a plea deal that required him to attend a diversion program. He also was sentenced to seven years of probation.
“He’s really eager to put this behind him,” Johnson’s attorney, Mary Rives, told WLKY.

GOP lawmaker hammered on CNN for ‘idiotic’ claim the economy is too healthy for a new stimulus
On CNN Saturday, financial columnist Michelle Singletary ripped Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) for claiming that the economy may be too good right now for another round of stimulus.
"I want to read to you what Senator Bill Cassidy, Republican of Louisiana, said regarding the potential stimulus," said co-anchor Christi Paul. "He said if it turns out the economy is recovering, that's a good thing and direct stimulus checks may not be necessary. Do you get the sense that the economy is recovering? And that these check wills not be needed?"
Trump’s Mt Rushmore speech trashed on CNN for being nonsense straight out of the ‘Hannity universe’
On CNN Saturday, reporter Brian Stelter tore into President Donald Trump's Mount Rushmore speech.
"The president had a chance to deliver one of these unifying messages, especially ahead of Independence Day, but instead he chose to go on the attack," said anchor Christi Paul. "Do you think that was the right strategy and why?"
"It sounded like a Stephen Miller speech," said Stelter. "And that is something that appeals to the parts of the president's base that he really focuses on. This is wartime conservativism [sic], this belief that conservatives are at war trying to protect the country from change."
