ALFRED, Maine — A Maine sheriff says four jail corrections officers have been indicted on misdemeanor charges including assault, criminal threatening and reckless conduct.

York County Sheriff Mark Ouellette said Friday that the charges stem from an incident three weeks ago when jailers responded to the cell of an inmate in the maximum security wing. He says the inmate was “acting out” when officers responded. He declined to provide details of the incident.

All four are on administrative leave and are subject to an internal investigation.

They’re identified as 30-year-old Roger Souliere of Waterboro, 25-year-old John Sibya of Alfred, 26-year-old Daniel Roy of Lyman and 27-year-old Michael Pitts of Biddeford.
