SHOCK!!! JACKSON COUNTY GUARD ADMITS SEX TALK & CONTACT WITH INMATE WHILST NEW SHERIFF FORTÉ SEYZ HE HASN'T YET READ SCATHING GRAND JURY REPORT!!!
The weekend doesn't stop horrible news for Jackson County & its beleaguered prison.
Here's the official statement from the Jackson County Prosecutor's office:
According to court records filed today, on Friday, May 11, sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Detention Center after corrections officer commanders, who were reviewing video surveillance in the jail, reported inappropriate conduct involving the defendant and a female prisoner. The conduct occurred on April 29, 2018 while the corrections officer was working in the Medical Housing area of the Detention Center. The defendant admitted to the commanders that he had sexual conversation and contact with the inmate.
Prosecutors requested a bond of $100,000. The defendant is being housed in another county detention center.
However, at today's meet & greet the new honcho admits that he's still getting up to speed.
Interim Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forté says he has not seen a grand jury report detailing poor conditions at the Jackson County Detention Center.
And in fairness, jail officials offer context on this jailhouse sexual escapade . ..
Jackson County Department of Corrections Director Diana Turner has released the following statement after charges were filed against a corrections officer.
“I want to thank the offices of Sheriff Darryl Forté and Prosecuting Attorney Jean Peters Baker for their work on this matter. I’d also like to commend the associates of our corrections staff who determined that inappropriate contact had occurred and immediately notified law enforcement. We will absolutely not tolerate these types of acts in our department and will assist authorities in this and any other prosecution in the future.”
