Former guard who sexually assaulted inmates gets 4 years

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — A former Georgia prison guard has been sentenced to more than four years in federal prison for sexually assaulting three female inmates and coercing them to help him cover up the assaults.

Court records indicate that 51-year-old Edgar Daniel Johnson was sentenced Monday to serve four years and three months followed by three years of supervised release. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

He had pleaded guilty in October.

Prosecutors say Johnson admitted that between Nov. 1, 2012, and Sept. 30, 2013, he had non-consensual sex multiple times with three inmates at Emanuel Women's Facility in Swainsboro.

Johnson also admitted calling Southside Fire Department in Chatham County to report a false bomb threat on Elba Island near the Port of Savannah in May 2017.
