MORGAN COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) - A Morgan County jail officer was arrested and is accused of sexual battery against a female inmate.
Prosecutors also charged 21-year-old Nicholas Tankersley with official misconduct and theft.
Court documents show Tankersley would tell female inmates if they stripped down to nothing, that he'd get them things like markers, ink pens, extra sheets, oranges, and batteries.
Prosecutors say Tankersley would also ask the women for sexual favors when they got out of jail, and would friend them on Facebook.
Tankersley is booked in the Johnson County Jail, and has been fired from his job.
UPDATE 10:45 P.M.: Many Indiana State Police dispatches were reporting accidents on major roads due to slick weather conditions Sunday night.
With some of the coldest nights of the season on the way, shelters are preparing for a rush of people trying to stay warm.
Christmas is just over two weeks away, but it came early for some very special kids in Hancock County.
