ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Lee County jailers under investigation for possible sexual misconduct have been fired from the Sheriff's office.

The GBI is investigating and expects to present their case to the District Attorney next week.

The Sheriff won't release the names of the women because neither has been charged. The GBI began their investigation Friday at the request of Lee County Sheriff's officials. They're looking into allegations that the women had inappropriate contact with two male inmates over the last month.
