CENTERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has arrested the former administrator of the Hickman County Jail on a rape charge.
The TBI said in a news release Wednesday from Nashville that 68-year-old Quinton Jerry Wasden was indicted last week by a county grand jury.
Agents said Wasden had sexual relations with a female inmate in exchange for extra freedoms at the jail. He had resigned from the post in April.
Wasden was released on $25,000 bond.
