Albany County Sheriff's Employee Questioned About Inappropriate Contact

The Albany County Sheriff's Office is confirming an investigation into accusations that a male employee at the jail had inappropriate contact with a female inmate.

Sheriff Craig Apple says the person who is being questioned was placed in a "position of trust" supervising female inmates, and if the accusations are true, he says it's "very unfortunate."

Some authorities are saying that the guard, who has not been publicly identified, has 19 years of service with the Sheriff's Department.
