BENTON_ A former Franklin County jail guard has been sentenced to four years in prison for sexual misconduct with three female inmates.

Scott McMurray of Christopher pleaded guilty in August to three counts of custodial sexual misconduct with female inmates in the Benton lockup. The 26-year-old was sentenced Friday.

Sheriff Bill Wilson has said the misconduct was carried out over two or three months before the first inmate came forward in June.

McMurray had been a correctional officer at the county jail since January 2007.

Officials say he'll get credit for 78 days of time served in the Saline County Jail.
