A former male nurse at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility in Burlington, Vermont is facing a criminal charge of sexual exploitation of an inmate, Vermont State Police said.

Thomas Njuguna, 36, of Colchester engaged in inappropriate behavior with a female inmate while Njuguna was acting in a medical profession, state police said. The contact with the female inmate was unwanted and unwarranted, Detective Lance Burnham said.

An investigation began in February into an alleged sexual assault complaint for an incident at the jail in November 2011. The complaint indicated that a female inmate had been inappropriately touched by a male nurse at the facility, police said.

Njuguna was arrested Tuesday and released on a citation ordering him to appear May 8, in Vermont Superior Court, police said.

Njuguna is no longer employed by the Vermont Department of Corrections, Burnham said. He said Njuguna resigned late last year on unrelated matters.

State police declined to release any information about the victim, including her age or hometown.
