A former head cook at the Taconic Correctional Facility in Bedford Hills has admitted to sexually abusing an inmate at the complex.
Garth Trail, 62, has pleaded guilty to one felony count of criminal sexual acts in Westchester County Court for engaging in a sexual act with an inmate on Sept. 27 last year.
Trail admitted to having sexual contact with the inmate in the kitchen area of the facility. He resigned from the position on Sept. 30 last year.
The guilty plea comes on the heels of a suspended Bedford Hills correctional officer who admitted to having similar contact with inmates. Trail was arrested with two others in May. Trail remains released on bail and is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 26 next year.
