Former County Jail Guard Pleads Guilty To Abusing Restrained Inmate

Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office

A former Cuyahoga County jail guard has pleaded guilty to charges related to the assault of a female inmate who was strapped to a restraint chair in July 2018. 

Prosecutors say 32-year-old Idris-Farid Clark and another guard assaulted the woman, and Clark then grabbed her by the hair and sprayed pepper foam on her face. Clark faces charges of felonious assault, extortion and unlawful restraint. He is also accused of intimidating a co-worker by claiming he had incriminating videos he'd release if the co-worker didn't testify for him.
