A deputy at the Douglas County jail is behind bars today on charges of having a "sexual encounter" with a female inmate.
Authorities say 39-year-old Deputy Jeffery Outlar is being held on suspicion of sexual assault, sexual conduct in a correctional facility and other charges.
Outlar is in another, undisclosed jail in the Denver area.
His bail is set at 100-thousand dollars.
Authorities say he is on unpaid leave and faces a court hearing tomorrow.
The sheriff's department hired Outlar in July.
