KY Deputy Charged With Rape
By AP
HOPKINSVILLE, KY - Kentucky State Police say they have arrested a Christian County sheriff's deputy on charges of rape, official misconduct and sodomy.

The Kentucky New Era reports 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 say the investigation is continuing.
