Prison official, members of special guard unit indicted on charges they attacked inmates

A deputy warden and seven members of a specially trained team of guards at a Georgia prison have been indicted on charges of repeatedly attacking inmates.

The indictment, filed this week in U.S. District Court, accuses members of the Correctional Emergency Response Team of beating inmates in retaliation for previous assaults on prison guards at Macon State Prison in Oglethorpe.

The indictment outlines several attacks that prosecutors say was carried out by the guards.

For instance, five of the team members are accused of either attacking an inmate in a prison gymnasium or watching the attack and not preventing it around Dec. 14, 2010.

The defendants are also accused of taking steps to mislead investigators about the attacks and cover up evidence.
