You can look but you can’t touch. Why do jail officers always forget that? Zel Mitchell is the latest to learn that gay cellblock sex is best left to porn, not the DeKalb County Jail.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office arrested Mitchell, 42, on Thursday after another inmate at the county jail where he worked tipped off investigators. Spurned lover? Maybe, maybe not.
But this sort of carnal, though consensual, fraternization is frowned upon, according to WSB.
Investigators from the Office of Professional Standards said the sex acts were done in exchange for food and other contraband items Mitchell would obtain for the inmate.
The inmate said he was not forced into the sex acts.
Investigators were tipped off to the incidents when another inmate discovered what was going on and reported it.
Mitchell has been charged with sexual assault on a person in custody, public indecency and violation of oath of office.
