LAWRENCEBURG, In. -- The Dearborn, Ohio County Prosecutor's Office charged an ex-parole officer with rape and other felonies Friday following a recent investigation.
C. Michael Sproessig faces charges of rape, sexual battery, intimidation and official misconduct.
According to prosecutor Aaron Negangard, investigators found Sproessig had used his position with the Indiana Department of Corrections to force non-consensual sexual intercourse with a parolee. While doing so, he was armed with a deadly weapon.
If convicted, Sproessig could face up to 50 years in jail for a Class A felony.
Negangard said, "It is clear from the facts of this case that Mr. Sproessig used his position as a parole officer to sexually assault a parolee who he was responsible for supervising."
The Department of Corrections fired Sproessig after the arrest.
"The criminal acts he committed are an inexcusable breach of the public trust and this office intends to hold him accountable," Negangard said.
