PETERSBURG, Va. - A contractor employee at Fort Lee who allowed inmates he supervised to have sex with prostitutes will spend four months on probation.
Media outlets report that 49-year-old Donald E. Grayson was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge.
Grayson pleaded guilty last September to assisting escape.
According to court documents, Grayson worked for a contractor who maintained a firing range at Fort Lee. He supervised work-release inmates from a federal correctional facility in Petersburg.
Prosecutors say Grayson allowed inmates to leave Fort Lee and meet prostitutes to have sex at nearby hotels. The inmates arranged the meetings with contraband cellphones.
