A Greensburg man who is in prison awaiting trial on charges of rape of a child and other related crimes is now facing charges of assaulting a Westmoreland County Prison Guard.
The Tribune-Review reports that 32-year-old Charles Hunter was being transported to Westmoreland County Prison in Hempfield on September 6th and was taken to a search room so that he could be searched before being placed in a cell. That’s when Hunter allegedly tried to strike the officer with him. As the officer called for other guards, Hunter continued to struggle and injured the guard’s hand.
Hunter is facing charges connected with an incident where he pressured an ex-girlfriend to send him a video of her performing a sex act on a child. A trial date for him has not been set.
