Pontotoc County Detention Officer Arrested

PONTOTOC COUNTY -- A Pontotoc County detention officer now finds himself on the opposite side of the law.

Kevin Clark was arrested Thursday and charged with forcible sodomy and two counts of rape by instrumentation of a female inmate.

The sheriff's office says it first learned about the allegations on Monday, but that alleged crime happened Saturday. The sheriff's office says surveillance video backs up the inmate's claims.

Clark posted a 100 thousand dollar bond, and has since been released from jail. Clark had been working at the justice center since August.
