A corrections officer has been arrested after he was accused of raping an inmate from the Albion Correctional Facility.

Investigators say John Randolph, 49, has been charged with third degree rape and official misconduct following a month long investigation.

Officials say a relationship developed between Randolph and an inmate in the prison and then turned physical while the inmate was outside the facility on a work release program.

Investigators say the two had sex multiple times in the Town of Ogden.

Randolph was taken to Monroe County Jail on $2,500 cash bail. He’s due in Ogden Town Court on Monday afternoon.

Officials say Randolph was a corrections officer at the facility for 24 years.
