Former BOP Correctional Officer Sentenced for Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law and False Statement


On August 19, 2020, a former BOP Correctional Officer previously assigned to the Federal Correctional Institution in Aliceville, Alabama, was sentenced to 42 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for two counts of deprivation of rights under color of law and one count of false statements.  Adrian Stargell was sentenced in the Northern District of Alabama.  According to the factual statement in support of the guilty plea, on or about September 18, 2017, October 1, 2017, and November 6, 2017, Stargell, while acting under color of law, willfully deprived female inmates of the right, secured and protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States, not to be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, by subjecting those inmates to sexual contact without their consent.  In addition, Stargell knowingly and willfully made false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements during an OIG interview by falsely denying that he had sexual contact with female inmates.  The investigation was conducted by the OIG’s Atlanta Area Office.
