CLEVELAND (WJW) -- The corrections officer accused of abusing an inmate at the Cuyahoga County Jail appeared in court on Friday.

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.

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

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