Former McMinn County jailer indicted over sexual contact with inmate

A fired McMinn County jailer has been indicted on charges of having sexual contact with an inmate, Sheriff Joe Guy said in a news release Thursday evening.

Guy said the jailer, Justin Swafford, was fired April 13 after an investigation. He said the charge is a Class E felony.

He said the charge involved contact, not actual sex, between Swafford and a female inmate. His office began an investigation last month in consultation with the district attorney’s office, he said.
