Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A former corrections officer at the federal prison in Waseca is now behind bars after admitting having a sexual relationship with an inmate.

Sentenced Thursday to 14 months was 37-year-old Mark McShane of Owatonna.

He pleaded guilty in June to one count of sexual abuse of an inmate. He admitted having sex with the female inmate between November 2016 and January 2017.

Federal prosecutors say he spilled the beans when he became drunk while at a party in February 2017 and told some co-workers about the relationship.

After serving his time, McShane will be on parole for 5 years.
