Report: Ky. jailer says sexual acts were wrong

GLASGOW, KY (AP) – A southern Kentucky jailer has told state investigators he knew having sexual contact with employees was “wrong morally.”

But Barren County Jailer Leland Cox says he thought the women involved would tell him if he crossed the line.

The Glasgow Daily Times reported that Cox gave a 37-minute taped statement to Kentucky State Police detectives on July 24, 2008, shortly after his arrest on 30 sex abuse charges. The paper obtained the tape through a public records request.

In March, Cox entered an Alford plea to the charges. A judge set Cox’s sentencing for March 2011.

Cox says that sexual contact with the women happened for about a year and always with the workers at the jail that he believed he could trust

  1. In a nation wherein “In GOD We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, corruption and wickedness exist on both sides of the badge and the bars. Yet, are they bad men just because they made some bad choices? Do not all of us have A’s and F’s on our moral report cards? As I so stated on my blog, we can’t fix it IF we can’t face it. I dare anyone who wants to fix their F’s to read that textbook in sex education and then to trust in GOD…and that’s my final answer!
