OSBI to Investigate Jail Misconduct

A Coal County Jail employee is accused of having improper contact with an inmate. The sheriff caught the female employee and the male inmate on Tuesday night after a head count.

He says he found them in another area of the courthouse engaged in what he calls "improper actions."

The sheriff says the male inmate is back in jail under lockdown while the female employee has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by the OSBI.
