Idris-Farid Clark, 33, pleaded guilty to attempted felonious assault, extortion and unlawful restraint. He will be sentenced on Feb. 27.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office said Clark used pepper foam on  an inmate while she was in a restraint chair on July, 16, 2018. The incident was caught on video. Fellow corrections officer, Robert P. Marsh, was also indicted for his role in the offense and pleaded guilty.

Then in August, Clark was indicted on additional charges for threatening other corrections officers.

Clark told another corrections officer he had videos of him involved in other incidents at the jail, which were, “Just as bad as his,” the indictment said. He told the other officer if he did not testify on his behalf he would release the video, court documents said.

“I’m not gonna burn for no one. If I go down, others are going down too,” Clark said, according to the indictment.
