Former Detention Officer Has Court Appearance Tuesday
A former detention officer accused of alleged sexual contact with an inmate of a correctional facility is scheduled for an appearance in Daviess County Court Tuesday. Twenty-seven year old Michael Byrd of Bethany was charged for the incident that is alleged to have happened in March this year at the Daviess Dekalb Regional Jail.
Byrd is also charged in Clinton County on a similar charge, where he was arrested in March for the incident alleged to have occurred in January.
In July, Byrd was arrested in Caldwell County for a third incident that was alleged to have occurred in January.
Byrd is scheduled to appear in Daviess County Court in Gallatin on Tuesday for a Plea or Trial Setting.
