A correction officer charged with sexually assaulting an inmate at a women's prison in Niantic has pleaded no contest to a lesser charge and will spend 90 days in prison, according to the court.
Jeff Bromley, 47, is accused of bringing the inmate food and gifts at the York Correctional Institution, taking photographs of her and having sex with her in a prison basement and laundry room.
He pleaded no contest Tuesday to second-degree unlawful restraint and was sentenced to one year in prison, suspended after he serves 90 days, according to the the office of the clerk at New London Superior Court.
The New London Day reports Bromley will serve two years of probation after his release from prison and will not be allowed to re-apply for his job as a correction officer until his probation is over.
Bromley was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.
Information on an attorney from Bromley was not immediately available.
