Two jailers have been fired and charged after allegedly having inappropriate sexual contact with inmates at the Taney County Jail.
Sheriff Jimmie Russell reports he arrested jailers Chad Brewer and Corey Ridings a week ago. Ridings is charged with four counts and Brewer one count of having sexual contact with an inmate.
Sheriff Russell says the alleged sexual contact was not forced and involved the same inmate on separate occasions.
Both men were fired when they were arrested and released on bond last Friday.
