BEDFORD HILLS - A former guard at the Bedford Hills prison for women is now facing federal civil rights charges.

Prosecutors say Jeffrey Green, 48, of Brooklyn, sexually assaulted an inmate in her cell last March.

The assault reportedly stopped only when another guard knocked on a door to be let into the unit, causing Green to leave the woman's cell.

Green faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
