Ex-jailer accused of having sex on the job

BANDERA — A grand jury on Monday indicted a local man on a charge of improper sexual contact with a person in custody, accusing him of having sexual relations with a female inmate at the Bandera County jail while he was a jailer, District Attorney Bruce Curry said.

Scott Sharp Jr., 19, had been on the job about six months before allegedly getting intimate in late November with the detainee, who wasn’t named.

When he was fired, Sharp said he’d had consensual sex three or four times with the woman, who denied any sex occurred, Bandera County Sheriff Weldon Tucker said. Sharp’s father is an investigator with the department.

The grand jury indicted Sharp on the state jail felony after hearing testimony from Texas Ranger Lance Coleman, Curry said.

Former jailer arrested for having stolen goods

A local law enforcement officer is suspected of breaking the very laws he has sworn to uphold.

Joshua Geisler, 24, a former employee of the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department, stands charged with class C felony receiving stolen property.

According to the probable cause statement on file for the case, the sheriff’s department was notified on Feb. 23 that a Taser reported missing from the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department had been located in Maries County. The Taser is an electroshock weapon that uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles and is worth approximately $1,400. It had been recovered from Geisler, who had quit working as a deputy in the Jail Division for Crawford County on Jan. 19.

Deputy Paul Satterfield later met with Geisler at the Owensville Police Department, where Geisler said he’d received the Taser from another former CCSD employee. Although he would not identify that person, he acknowledged that what he had done by accepting the stolen goods it could be considered a form of stealing.

At the time of the investigation, Geisler was working as a police officer with the Belle Police Department and there was a report that he gave conflicting information to some of the other officers about where he’d obtained the Taser.

A warrant was issued, and Geisler turned himself in at the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and was released after posting a $2,000 cash bond.
