GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A male inmate faces a felony sexual battery charge for allegedly touching a female inmate inappropriately at the Alachua County Jail.
Cameras at the jail show 26-year-old Tyrone Detron Kirksey checking two cells at the jail before finding the woman. He's seen on video touching the woman, who was lying on a bench in a holding cell early Saturday morning.
Kirksey had been booked into jail for resisting arrest and now faces the additional sexual battery charge and a misdemeanor lewd and lascivious act charge. He remained in jail Monday on a total $102,500 bail. Jail records do not list an attorney for him.
It was unclear how Kirksey was able to gain access the woman's cell. Jail officials said the investigation was ongoing and could not comment further.
