Former GreeneCo Jailer Arrested after Alleged Sex with Inmate

PARAGOULD, AR - Authorities say a former Greene County jail supervisor has been arrested after acknowledging he had sex with a state prison inmate serving as a trustee there.

William Shaw faces a felony sexual assault charge stemming from the incident.  Meanwhile, Sheriff Dan Langston says the county likely will lose state trustee labor until at least February as officials investigate the second such incident in a year.

Langston says 35-year-old Shaw admitted to having sex with a female inmate in the last year inside an office at the jail.  Langston says Shaw told a deputy he had "deep regrets" about what he did.

The sheriff says the allegations involving Shaw were never brought to his attention before.

This is the second time this year that a Greene County jailer has faced allegations over trustees.  Officials say former jailer John David Dupwe was arrested for felony sexual assault after meeting a female prisoner for sex while she was on a furlough.

Shaw was being held on $25,000 bond yesterday.
