FORT VALLEY, Ga. (AP) — A man hired to help guard a Peach County jail has been accused of having sex with an inmate.

Sheriff Terry Deese tells news outlets Thursday 43-year-old Nicholas Hughley, of Macon, is being terminated from his position after facing two counts of sexual assault and one count of violating his oath as an officer.

Deese says surveillance cameras inside the Peach County Law Enforcement Center show Hughley going into a female inmate’s cell and staying there for a while. The jail typically houses about 10 women and 70 men.

Hughley was arrested Wednesday, the day after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called in to examine the incident.

It’s unclear whether Hughley has an attorney.
