Two former jailers in Taney county are charged with having sex with prisoners.
Taney County Sheriff Jimmy Russell tells KSPR News he arrested his own men last week (5-9).
The next day Chad Brewer and Corey Ridings were charged with felonies.
The sheriff says the alleged sexual contact was not forced and happened on separate occasions.
Sheriff Russell said he's looking at the circumstances surrounding the criminal charges, and any steps to prevent it in the future will be taken.
Both men were fired when they were arrested; they were released on bond the next day.
