DA: Close sex-with-prisoner loophole in Mass. law
The current law says prisoners cannot legally consent to having sex with a police or corrections officer

BOSTON — Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley is asking lawmakers to tighten a law that prohibits police and corrections officers, but not court officers, from having sex with prisoners.
In a letter to legislative leaders, Conley asked that the law be changed to close a "loophole" investigators uncovered while investigating the case of a court officer from Braintree accused of sexual misconduct with prisoners.
