Multiple prison guards put on leave following inmate attack

New London

The state Department of Correction has placed seven prison guards on paid leave pending an investigation.

The five corrections officers and two correctional lieutenants were placed on leave amid an investigation into an inmate’s alleged assault on staff at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center in Montville.

The Department of Correction tells the Day that the department is withholding the guards’ names to ensure the investigation’s integrity.

Officials say inmate Darryl Morin became combative with prison staff on Jan. 15, resulting in injuries to two staff members.

Morin was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, but a clerk could not confirm if he was present.

Morin was admitted to the prison on Jan. 14 after he failed to post a $25,000 bond on charges of second-degree larceny.
