Houston County Jail Scandal

A corrections officer at the Houston County Jail will not be fired. Sheriff Lamar Glover made this decision Monday.

Seven other workers quit their jobs following a six-week investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and other violations. But one employee who was accused in the scandal refused to resign.

Sheriff Glover says after hearing the worker's side of the story, he decided to let the man return to work.

The sheriff says his follow-up evaluation revealed the employee was not implicated in any of the allegations of sexual misconduct.

Sheriff Glover says the worker admitted to an earlier offense that happened some two years ago.

He won't lose his job, but he will be written up for what the sheriff calls a minor infraction.
