The Pulaski County sheriff’s office said county Detention Deputy Joseph Conner was arrested Tuesday afternoon for third-degree sexual assault on a female prisoner.
A preliminary report says an inmate awoke to find Conner’s erect penis in her hand and removed it after she awoke. The report says he told investigators his penis was in her hand but it was her idea. He’s worked at the detention facility since February 2013.
Conner, 27, of Center Ridge, was released last night on a $15,000 bond. He has resigned from the job.
