The Sun Journal filed a Freedom of Access Act request last week with the Androscoggin County Commissioners' office to get a copy of video captured on Androscoggin County Jail security cameras at about 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 22.
The video images depict corrections officers binding one of their workers to an office chair with duct tape, then wheeling him into the prisoner transport elevator and sending him to another floor in the jail. He is wheeled out of the elevator and back into the booking area of the jail where he eventually frees himself from the duct tape (not shown in the jail videotape.)
Several corrections officers were disciplined last week due to their involvement in the incident.
Shown in the first frame of the video are: Corrections Officer Robert Murphy, distant right; Sgt. Kevin Harmon, distant left, seated; Cpl. Patrick Gorham, foreground, back to camera; Corrections Officer John Morissette, seated front left.
Harmon later resigned. Murphy was suspended without pay for a 48-hour period and put on probation for three months. Gorham, who also was involved in an earlier incident, was fired.
