Starting in February, a former Tioga County corrections officer will be spending six months in federal prison for the beating of a prisoner in 2010.

The beating of inmate David Coffey was caught on tape.

David Monell of Apalachin was sentenced in federal court this week after he pleaded guilty in August to deprivation of rights under color of law.

Monell was caught on surveilance video beating Coffey while the suspect was handcuffed to a chair.

After his release from federal prison, Monell will be confined to his house and required to wear an electronic monitoring device for the first six months of his one year supervised discharge.
