(BUTLER COUNTY, Kan.)
A Butler county jail deputy is fired, after he's accused of having sex with an inmate.
Charles Chaney was arrested and charged with unlawful sexual relations.
Shortly after someone made accusations against him, a court complaint was filed.
Charles Chaney "did engage in consensual sex...with a person who is not married to the offender, and the offender is a law enforcement officer or an employee of the jail..."
The Sheriff says this investigation moved quickly because he has video evidence and a confession.
Chaney is out on a $20,000 bond.
He made first appearance on Monday.
Sheriff Herzet says this is the first time something like this has happened with a jail deputy in Butler county.
The case is now being handled by the Butler County Attorney.
Chaney is due back in court in early February.
