Snohomish County jail deputy faces chargesNovember 24, 2013 @ 4:31 pm (Updated: 7:38 am - 11/25/13 )
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - A Snohomish County jail deputy is facing a felony charge after female inmates accused him of coercing them into having sex with him.
The Daily Herald reports 34-year-old Sean Christopher Wright was charged Thursday with one count of first-degree sexual misconduct.
The allegation comes as the sheriff's office wrestles with multiple problems at the jail, including inmate deaths, overcrowding and overtime expenses.
Wright has worked at the jail in Everett since September 2010. Sheriff's spokeswoman Shari Ireton says he's been on paid administrative leave since June 5.
