November 21, 2013

A 39-year-old prison officer faces charges after police say he had sex with women inmates at Sussex Correctional Institution.

Police arrested Christopher S. Peck Nov. 20 at his Felton home after a 19-year-old woman inmate in the SCI Boot Camp Program told officials she had had sexual relations with Peck, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

Peck was a correctional officer assigned to the facility; he had sexual relations with the teen 11 times beginning in July, Fournier said.

During the investigation, police discovered two other woman prisoners - one 28, the other 27 - had sexual relations with Peck, Fournier said.

Police charged Peck with 11 counts of sexual relations in a detention facility. He was committed to Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna in default of $22,000 secured bond.
