PORTLAND, Maine — Two female prison inmates who had sex with correctional officers at a Maine prison are suing the state and a number of officers.

Just over a year ago a former officer at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham was sentenced to four months in jail for having sex with two inmates and another officer pleaded guilty to charges that he did not report the incidents.

The Portland Press Herald says that on Tuesday the two women sued the correctional center, two sergeants and three top corrections department officials.

They are seeking unspecified damages.

The complaint accuses the former officers of negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and violations of the Maine Civil Rights Act.
