Former sheriff’s deputy sentenced for sex with inmate
PASCAGOULA (AP) — A former sheriff’s deputy will serve two years in prison for having sex with an inmate while on duty.
The Sun Herald reports that 33-year-old Johnathan Jenkins was sentenced Friday on one count of unlawful sexual activity.
In his plea, Jackson admitted to having sex with a female inmate for two days in September 2016 while on duty as a Jackson County deputy.
Jenkins will serve three years under post-release supervision and will pay a $1,500 fine. He’ll have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
District Attorney Tony Lawrence said Jackson violated the law by taking advantage of someone he was charged with securing, monitoring and protecting.
