Federal prosecutors have offered a plea deal to a former Allegheny County Jail guard charged with depriving an inmate of his civil rights, according to court documents.
Arii Metz, 33, of the North Side is charged with assaulting David Kipp, 25, while Kipp was held in the jail.
Metz's attorney, James Wymard, asked U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer on Tuesday to extend a court deadline by a week because he's tied up in another trial and has not had time to review the offer with Metz. Fischer approved the delay on Wednesday.
The U.S. Attorney's Office and Wymard declined comment on the specifics of the plea bargain offer.
