BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A prison employee is facing sentencing for sexually abusing an inmate in Danbury.

Steven Wolff of the Bronx, N.Y., is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in federal court in Bridgeport. He pleaded guilty in August to sexual abuse of a ward.

Authorities say Wolff, while employed as a utilities systems repair operator foreman by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, engaged in sexual acts with a female inmate at the prison.

Prosecutors say on multiple occasions in 2011, Wolff and the victim met in the boiler area and engaged in sexual intercourse. They say Wolff provided contraband including hair dye, candy, greeting cards and over-the-counter medication to the inmate and contraband to another inmate who acted as a lookout.

Wolff faces up to 15 years in prison.
