Guard expected to appear in Pittsburgh prison case

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A fired state prison guard is expected to take the stand to defend himself against criminal charges that he physically and sexually abused convicted child molesters and gay inmates serving time at the state prison in Pittsburgh.

Sixty-one-year-old Harry Nicoletti has maintained the charges are “made up” and today is expected to counter 80 charges including involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, institutional sexual assault and official oppression.

Twenty inmates have testified that Nicoletti singled them out because of their sexual crimes or orientations and either abused them personally or had other guards and inmate workers do so. Some inmates claim they were sexually assaulted or beaten, while others say they had their bedding or food fouled by urine or other bodily fluids.

Nicoletti is expected to be the last witness to testify.

Prosecute?.They should give the guy a promotion. Good for him. Way to take a stand Mr.Nicoletti I for one am very proud of you. Only sorry that most likely one of your Obama loving liberal pinko workers turned you in.You will be remembered for the good work you have done.
