Former prison guard Robert Joseph Hamm was sentenced to 11 years in prison for violating his probation and for having sex with a minor.

Hamm, 34, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual conduct with a minor in a case from this year. He was given 1 1/2 years on each of the two counts to be served consecutively.

Hamm also got eight years in prison for violating his probation in a 2011 case involving the same minor girl.

In that case, Hamm also pleaded guilty to having a sexual relationship with the same girl. He served nearly a year in prison for that conviction.
