Ferguson corrections officer facing felony charges

A former Ferguson corrections officer is facing felony charges for allegedly raping a pregnant female inmate.

29-year-old Jaris Hayden is facing two charges for forcing her to take part in sexual activities with him and allowing her to escape.

“You can't have that sort of activity, that sort of conduct, that sort of coercion and abuse taking place anywhere, but certainly not taking place with a person you put in a position of trust like that to protect the people who are in jail,” says St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch.
