Corrections Officer Injured at Moravia Facility


A corrections officer at the Cayuga Correctional Facility was assaulted in mid-March, and an inmate has been charged in connection with the incident.

NYSCOPBA, the union representing corrections officers, reports that the inmate was causing disruption in the prison dormitory on March 15th and refused to comply with the officer’s orders to calm down.

The officer was injured while attempting to avoid a punch from the inmate, who proceeded to jump on the officer and repeatedly slam him on the ground while pulling at the officer’s jacket.

The inmate, who is currently serving an eight-year sentence for drug-related offenses, has been charged in relation to the assault.

The officer received treatment for lower back pain and swelling and has since returned to work.
