Female jailer faces sex charges

January 30, 2003

Pelham-- A female jailer is arrested for performing oral sex on an inmate. Thirty-two-year-old Tahisha Brinson of Camilla, who worked at the Pelham City Jail, is charged with sodomy and sexual assault on a person in custody.

She has resigned, and got out of jail on a $4,000 bond.

"We do want to send a firm message in these cases that we're not gonna tolerate it," said Investigator of the Pelham Police Department Rod Williams. "Other than being released from a job, we will be pressing charges if you violate laws while an employee with the Pelham Police Department."

Last May, former Pelham Police Officer Ricky Thomas, was accused of allowing a female inmate to perform oral sex on him. He's awaiting a trial.
