Predator or Prey?

I hope this is a false accusation for the jailer's sake.

Woman accuses jailer of sexual assault

A claim of a sexual assault over the weekend in the Dimmit County jail was being investigated Thursday by the Texas Rangers in Carrizo Springs.

“We have an allegation from a female inmate that she was assaulted by a male jailer,” said Chief Deputy Robert Thornsburg.

He said the woman, who is no longer at the jail, did not require medical treatment and the jailer, who was not named, had not been charged or suspended.

“Right now they are interviewing him. Once we have something conclusive, an arrest or anything else, we'll tell you,” he said.
