NEW YORK (CBS 2) –  A former Nassau County correction officer already accused of raping and sexually abusing female inmates pleaded not guilty to a new round of criminal charges.

Mark Barber, 48,  of Levittown was arraigned on an 80-count indictment Tuesday.

The D.A. said Barber used his position as a grievance officer for the female prison population to pressure inmates into sexual relationships.

Barber allegedly targeted inmates with histories of drug abuse, prostitution, or mental health treatment.
