Former Benton County Jail correctional officer accused of having sexual contact with inmate
A former Benton County Jail correctional officer is accused of having sexual contact with a female inmate.
TBI spokesperson Keli McAlister says 37-year-old Brandon D. Cooley, of Camden, turned himself into TBI agents Monday and booked into the Benton County Jail.
Last September, TBI agents began investigating allegations that a former correctional officer had sexual contact with an inmate.
As a result of the investigation, an arrest warrant was secured last Friday for Cooley on one count of Sexual Contact with an Inmate.
Cooley has been released on his own recognizance.
