JACKSON, Tenn. (WKRN) – A former jailer accused of having consensual sexual contact with an inmate has been arrested.
During an investigation by the TBI, it was discovered that Patrick Cary, who was a correctional officer at the Carroll County jail at the time, reportedly had inappropriate contact with a female inmate in November 2015.
A grand jury indicted the 22-year-old man with one count of sexual contact with inmates earlier this week.
On Thursday, Cary turned himself into the Carroll County jail.
He has since been released after posting a $5,000 bond.
