Byrd Pleads Guilty To Sexual Contact With A Detainee of A Correction Facility
A former detention officer accused of alleged three counts of sexual contact with an inmate of a county correctional facility pled guilty to one of the three charges. Twenty-eight-year-old Michael Byrd of Bethany appeared in Daviess County Court Tuesday and entered a plea of Guilty. The plea came with a recommendation for sentencing. Judge Daren Adkins waived the Sentencing assessment and Byrd was sentenced to four years in prison with the sentence to be served consecutive to any other sentences.
The other two charges are in Clinton and Caldwell Counties. Byrd is scheduled to make an appearance on the Clinton County charge on May 13th and the Caldwell County charge on June 11th.
