The 13-count indictment handed up Tuesday by a Middlesex County grand jury accuses Derick Stevens of official misconduct, sexual assault, witness and evidence tampering and hindering apprehension.

Prosecutors say the 40-year-old Stevens was working as a guard at the Middlesex County youth detention center when he and the inmate allegedly had sex in 2000. He was charged with sexual assault since he had a supervisory role over the woman, who was 21 years old at the time.

In a separate matter, another county grand jury recently indicted Stevens on charges he made and carried false police identification.
