A Jacksonville jury found a former Florida State Prison guard guilty of pouring scalding water on an inmate to discipline him for feigning an injury. Paul Tillis of Lake Butler faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine for violating the inmate’s civil rights in August 2005. Prosecutors said he also failed to arrange medical treatment for the inmate, who suffered second-degree burns on his chest. A sentencing date hasn’t been scheduled.
