Jail Guard Accused of Showing Porn to Juvenile Inmate
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- A former jail guard is under investigation, accused of showing pornography to a juvenile inmate.
The video allegedly shows the the detention officer having sex with another guard who worked at the jail.
A search warrant states the guard let the juvenile inmate look at Facebook on his cell phone. The inmate showed a picture of his girlfriend.
"Man that ain't nothing," the guard allegedly said after seeing the picture. "I can top that."
He then apparently showed pictures and videos of him having sex with the other guard he was dating. The inmate later described a tattoo on the woman's stomach that he allegedly saw in one of these videos.
The woman said she had sex with the guard while they were dating, but she never knew or agreed to let him record it.
The guard showing the video was fired, but he denies he ever showed the videos. His attorney appealed his firing saying there's no evidence these videos exist. He claims the inmate involved "frequently (will) make up stories about the staff to get them in trouble". The appeal was turned down.
Detectives are now searching the guard's home in Franklinton. A search warrant was issued to look for evidence. The guard could face a series of criminal charges including voyeurism and dereliction of duty.
We tried to contact both the guard in question and his attorney but have not heard back yet.
