A prison chaplain at Dayton Correctional Institution has been indicted in Montgomery County for sexual battery of a prison inmate.

Kenneth Bernard Bozeman, 52, of Dayton, is charged with nine counts of sexual battery, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

A female inmate at Dayton Correctional Institution on Aug. 27, 2015, reported to prison officials at the Germantown Street facility that Bozeman allegedly engaged in sexual conduct with her, according to a media release.

“Inmates in state custody have the same right to not being sexually assaulted as anyone else,” said Prosecutor Mat Heck in a release. “The fact that an employee of the prison committed these offenses is especially disturbing.”

Bozeman will be arraigned May 12.
