A DeKalb County Sheriff's deputy has been terminated for alleged inappropriate contact with a woman he placed in custody Friday night.
Sheriff Lloyd Emmons confirms that he has dismissed Officer David Sharp.
According to Sheriff Emmons the woman, who was taken into custody by Officer Sharp for violation of probation, was upset when she arrived at the jail, complaining to the staff that she had been the victim of a sexual assault.
The Sheriff's Department conducted an internal administrative investigation while the TBI is conducting a criminal probe into the matter, including the collection of DNA evidence.
Sheriff Emmons says the woman has been moved to another location where she is receiving counseling.
