QUINCY, Fla. (WCTV) -- An officer with the Quincy Police Department is being investigated for inappropriate sexual conduct with a Gadsden County inmate.
The GCSO says the conduct occurred while the inmate was working outside of the jail as a part of the Trustee Program, a program that allows inmates to participate in employment opportunities while serving their sentences.
Gadsden County Sheriff Morris Young said, "Though this situation was an isolated incident, one event like this is too many."
Criminal actions in the investigation are pending and state attorneys are reviewing the case.
WCTV is choosing not to name the officer because he is not being charged at this time.
