Washington County Inmate Accuses Deputy of Sexual Harassment

The Washington County Sheriff's Department has launched an internal investigation.
WASHINGTON COUNTY, AR (KNWA) -- The Washington County Sheriff's Office has launched an internal investigation into reports a man being held at the county jail was sexually harassed by a jailer.

The inmate claims a deputy grabbed his groin and ordered him to perform a sexual act. The man also says he was placed into a segregated cell for bad behavior and the same deputy moved him into the cell where a rape had occurred a few years ago, then taunted him about it.

The inmate, who is working with a lawyer, said there is video to prove what happened and another deputy who reportedly saw it happen is writing a statement.

He also claims the deputy told him if he kept these exchanges a secret, they would let him out of segregation sooner.
