BECKLEY, W.Va.


A former worker at the Federal Prison Camp in Alderson has pleaded guilty to charges that he touched a female inmate's breasts.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 48-year-old Jeffrey S. Walton of Ronceverte was acting as the inmate's work supervisor when the incident occurred last year.

Walton pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Beckley to abusive sexual contact with a female federal inmate.

Sentencing is set for July 31. Walton faces up to two years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
