Bainbridge-  Detention Officer Kedrick Bryant was arrested and charged with sexual assault. He's accused of having sex with a 23 year old female inmate.  The GBI is investigating and more charges could be filed. 

Twenty two year old Kedrick Bryant is free on bond tonight. Because the woman was being held in Bryant's custody, Sheriff Wiley Griffin explains charges had to be filed even if the act was consensual.

"He had consensual sex with an inmate, which by Georgia law it's sexual assault of someone in custody and he has been arrested for that and he has bonded out on that," said Sheriff Wiley Griffin, Decatur County. 

Bryant has also been terminated from the Sheriff's office. Bryant's case will be presented to the grand jury to determine if he violated his oath of office.
