A former Davidson County jail employee surrendered himself at police headquarters Saturday following his indictment on two counts of having sexual contact with a female prisoner.
James Wilson, 50, is alleged to have sexually touched the 28-year-old inmate through her cell door on two occasions last December.
Wilson actually reported his actions to his superiors in early December, which led to the investigation.
The two counts against Wilson are Class E felonies.
He is free on $20,000 bond and will be arraigned in criminal court in the near future, police said.
