WISCASSET, Maine (AP) - Two Maine jail inmates are in more legal trouble after falsely accusing a guard of sexual assault.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department says 25-year-old Brandon Knowles told authorities that a female corrections officer at the Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset touched his genitals Saturday in a secluded area of the jail.

Another inmate, 26-year-old Cory Breen, said he was in the area at the same time and backed up Knowles’ account.

But a detective reviewed security video from the jail and quickly determined that the complaint had been fabricated.

Now Knowles is charged with making a false public report and Breen is charged with hindering an investigation.
