Guard Is Sentenced for Sex With Inmate

A former guard at the downtown federal prison was sentenced Thursday to four months in jail for having sex with a female prisoner in the prison’s laundry room.

Carmond McNeil, 31, of National City has been convicted of the misdemeanor charge March 14.

U.S. Magistrate Roger McKee also ordered McNeil to perform 50 hours of community service work under terms of his three-year probation.

The woman inmate, who was incarcerated at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on a drug charge, testified at the trial.


Although she consented to have sex with McNeil, it’s a crime for a guard to have sexual contact with a prisoner in a federal jail.

Another guard found the woman locked in the prison’s 10th-floor laundry room, where McNeil had left her awaiting his return.
