NJ Officer Charged with Arranging Inmate’s Attack
An officer at the Gloucester County Jail has been charged with arranging for one inmate to attack another.
Thirty-two-year-old Thomas Hahn is charged with aggravated assault, complicity, conspiracy and misconduct.
Hahn declined comment when reached on Wednesday night, citing the ongoing investigation. He was charged Friday and has since been released from jail on bail of $25,000.
Hahn referred all questions to his attorney, who could not be reached Wednesday night.
The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office says Hahn moved the 20-year-old victim in the jail so another inmate could attack him on Sept. 14.
The alleged victim was injured, though authorities won’t say how severely. He’s been moved to another correctional facility.
Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Bernie Weisenfeld says the investigation is continuing. So far, no one else has been charged.
