State pays former inmate $175,000 settlement in abuse claim

The state agreed to pay out a $175,000 settlement to a former Oregon inmate who alleged she was sexually abused by a prison doctor during a gynecological exam in 2013.

The lawsuit was filed in 2015 in U.S. District Court and named Dr. Robert W. Snider along with other members of the Coffee Creek Correctional Institution staff, including the medical director and chief medical officer.

It was settled earlier this year. Snider, 58, continues to work for the Department of Corrections. In February, one month after the case was settled, he was assigned to what the agency said is a new telemedicine program where, an agency spokeswoman said, he "delivers medical care to inmates through videoconferencing technology." Betty Bernt, a corrections spokeswoman, said the new assignment was not a result of the settlement.

Snider has worked for the state corrections agency since August 2006; his current annual salary is $233,028, according to the agency.
