BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - A former guard at the Federal Prison Camp in Alderson will spend more than a year behind bars for improperly touching an inmate.

Richard Canterbury pleaded guilty in January to abusive sexual conduct involving a ward. He was sentenced on Wednesday in federal court in Beckley to 14 months in prison.

The 50-year-old Lewisburg resident also must register as a sex offender.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says Canterbury admitted touching the breasts of a female inmate in April 2014.
