Tricks and Treats: Connecticut Court Marshal Accused of Giving Inmates Sweets for Sex Acts

Court officials say a judicial marshal in Milford Superior Court has been fired for his alleged sexy actions with a female inmate.

Police say 39-year-old Manfred Vives of Ansonia is accused of trading doughnuts and cookies for sexy actions by the 19-year-old woman.

Vives was arrested last month on a warrant charging him with fourth-degree sexual assault. He allegedly grabbed the breast of the inmate.

According to court documents the same woman had flashed her breasts and kissed another female inmate while Vives watched, in exchange for baked goods and sweets.

Vives, fired on Wednesday, has denied the charges and claims it's retaliation for raising concerns about the safety of inmates and marshals because of staffing levels.
