Court marshall charged with masturbation

A marshal at a Stamford courthouse is now facing criminal charges after an alleged encounter with a female prisoner.

The woman said Maurice Herring exposed himself and masturbated in front of her on two occasions while she was held in the courthouse lockup.

Police say Herring turned himself in yesterday.

A spokeswoman for the courts says he'll remain suspended until the outcome of the criminal case.
