Former Hartford Correction Officer Pleads Guilty to Sexual Assault

A former Hartford correction officer accused of raping several women in Hartford and New Britain has pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault as part of a deal with prosecutors, his attorney said Thursday.

Kelvin Grisales faces a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 40 years in prison, according to his defense attorney.

He was first arrested last April in connection with the sexual assault of a Hartford woman. A month later, he was charged in the brutal attack on a prostitute in New Britain in 2012.

Police said DNA evidence links Grisales to at least three other incidents and more charges have been filed out of Hartford.

Grisales will be sentenced in August.
