NASHVILLE – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the indictment and arrest of a former Moore County correctional officer.

At the request of 17th District Attorney General Rob Carter, on May 13th, TBI Special Agents began working with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office in investigating allegations that a correctional officer with that agency was having sexual contact with an inmate at the jail.
