Randy Beehler, a 54-year-old former corrections officer from Minnesota, will be spending the next few months behind bars.
According to a report from Mercury News, Beehler was sentenced to 120 days in jail and seven years of probation for trading a McDonald’s meal for sex with an inmate.
Beehler was transporting the woman to another jail when he stopped for food. She said she would “do anything” for a meal, so he went through a McDonald’s drive-through before the shenanigans began.
“I am pleased Mr. Beehler is being held accountable for his actions,” Dakota County Attorney Kathy Keena said in a statement. “As an employee of the Minnesota Department of Corrections, Mr. Beehler was entrusted with the victim’s care and protection while transporting her to the Hennepin County Jail.
“He violated his position of authority by engaging in sexual acts with a woman who was in a very vulnerable situation.”
Beehler initially denied the allegations before coming clean.
