Former jailer enters not guilty plea

August 1, 2006

Leesburg-- A former Lee County jailer pleaded not guilty to having sex with a female inmate.

40 year old John Sigmon is charged with having sex with a 29 year old woman February 12th at the Lee County jail.

 Investigators say the woman willingly participated in the sex, but because she was in his custody, he's charged with raping her.

Sigmon was immediately fired by the Lee County Sheriff. His trial is expected to be held early next year.
