Former guard accused of sexually assaulting two inmates


Black River Falls (WQOW) - A former guard at an area correctional facility is accused of sexually assaulting two inmates.

Gregg Twesme, of Black River Falls is charged with assaulting the inmates while he worked as a sergeant at the Black River Correctional Center.

One of the inmates told investigators that the assault happened while inmates were working in a wooded area and that Twesme led him deeper into the woods out of the view of others. A second inmate came forward after hearing about that incident and said Twesme had also assaulted him while on a work detail.  

Both said the assaults happened in January. Twesme now faces four felony charges.

The correctional facility says he quit working there last month.
