TROY, Va. — A former guard at a Virginia women’s prison with a history of sexual misconduct is facing charges for allegedly having sex with an inmate.

John Bernard Bland Jr., 40, was arrested Feb. 28 and charged with three counts of carnal knowledge of a prisoner while he was a guard at Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women, Virginia’s largest women’s prison. Bland is scheduled to appear in Fluvanna County Circuit Court on Friday to inform the judge whether he will hire an attorney or needs one appointed to represent him.

Bland is accused in three incidents in June and July of 2011 involving the same inmate, said Fluvanna County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jeffrey Haislip. Haislip refused to further discuss the allegations.

Department of Corrections spokesman Larry Traylor said the agency investigated the allegations and turned over its findings to Haislip’s office.
