A central Missouri detention officer has been charged with having sex with a female inmate.

Miller County jailer Samuel Evans, of Eldon, was charged Friday with a felony of having sexual conduct with a prisoner. He posted $10,000 bond.

Miller County Sheriff Louie Gregoire said in a statement he was disappointed in Evans’ actions. He said he will not tolerate that type of conduct in his employees.

Online court records don’t name an attorney for Evans.
