Accused Prison Guard Fired
SCRANTON — A corrections officer at the Lackawanna County prison, accused of raping four inmates, has been fired.
Officials say Joe Black of Dickson City was let go Friday after a hearing.
Earlier this month, he was charged with raping four female inmates and sexually assaulting three others at the prison between 2002 and 2011.
The investigation began more than two years ago.
Black had been suspended with pay up until he was fired Friday.
