ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former Albuquerque jail guard has been acquitted of three counts of rape and jurors were unable to reach a verdict on three other felony charges.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2fFJCFj ) district court jurors reached their verdicts Wednesday in the trial of Torry Chambers.

He’s still is a sergeant at the Metropolitan Detention Center, but isn’t allowed to have contact with inmates.

Chambers was accused of five counts of criminal sexual penetration against three women inmates between 2008 and 2010.

He also faced one charge that he facilitated the rape of a female inmate by a male inmate.

Chambers was acquitted on three criminal sexual penetration charges and a judge declared a mistrial on the remaining charges.

Prosecutors have 10 days to decide whether they’ll retry Chambers on those charges.
