Kentucky Deputy Charged With Rape

Posted: Updated:

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police said they arrested a Christian County sheriff's deputy on charges of rape, official misconduct and sodomy.

The charges against 38-year-old Brandon L. Hawkins, who also works as a deputy jailer, stem from a relationship he had with a former female inmate.

Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Chris Miller said in a statement Friday that Hawkins has been suspended without pay.

It was unclear whether Hawkins has an attorney. State police said the investigation was continuing.
