A corrections officer convicted of rape used a cell phone to document his crimes.

A white Pennsylvania correctional officer & sexually violent predator, Edward Davis, was sentenced today in Luzerne County Court to 5 years probation  and 15 years on the Sex Offender registry. He faces no fine or victim restitution payments for raping an inmate at the State Correctional Institution at Dallas, PA, or for sneaking in a cellphone, so he can videotape himself doing the sexual act.

Hundreds of Sexually explicit letters

Pennsylvania State Police charged Edward Davis in December of 2012 after he was caught sneaking the cellphone in his boot on January 14th, 2012. During the Investigation, State Police Investigators discovered the rapist had written his victim 100 letters, many of the letters were sexually explicit.

In January of this year, Davis pleaded guilty to institutional sexual assault and contraband. Prosecutors wanted him to serve state prison time, but the Judge did not care.
