A former Tygart Valley Regional Jail correctional officer accused of forcing a female inmate to engage in sexual acts pleaded not guilty Friday in Randolph County Circuit Court.

Buddy Lee Leary, 41, of Elkins, pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of imposition of sexual acts on an incarcerated person, charges that stem from an incident that allegedly took place Dec. 4, 2012, at the TVRJ.

According to previous reports, the victim in the case told police Leary allegedly entered her cell, began to touch her genitals and then instructed her to perform a sexual act on him. Several minutes later, Leary abruptly exited the victim's cell, she said.

Leary was arrested on Feb. 22 and is currently free on a $75,000 personal recognizance bond.

Also on Friday, a couple accused of beating their child on the legs and buttocks with a metal pipe appeared in court. Raymond James Kale, Jr., 28, pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of child abuse resulting in bodily injury, and one felony count of conspiracy. Loren Garcia, 32, also of daily, pleaded not guilty of one felony count of child abuse resulting in bodily injury, one count of child neglect resulting in bodily injury and one felony count of conspiracy.

The abuse is alleged to have taken place between May 11 and May 13.
