Twiggs jailers arrested on sex charges

The Twiggs County Sheriff's Office will release information this morning on the arrest of two jailers accused of having sex with a female inmate.

Chief Deputy Billy Boney said the sheriff plans to have a news conference at 11 a.m. today to discuss the GBI investigation and charges filed against the men who were charged with sexual assault of an inmate last week.

Although the sex was consensual because the woman was in custody it is considered a case of sexual assault, Boney said.

"It's a terrible thing," Boney said of the incident.
