Prison employee arrested

A Deer Ridge Correctional Institution employee, Jon Michael Yeakey II, 43, of Redmond, has been placed on unpaid administrative leave following his arrest on 10 sex abuse charges involving a teenage girl, according to state Department of Corrections authorities.

Redmond police received reports of alleged sexual assaults that happened last month in the Redmond area, involving Yeakey and a juvenile girl.

Following an investigation, Yeakey was arrested and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail in Bend on charges of first-degree rape, six counts of second-degree sexual abuse, and three counts of third-degree sexual abuse. His bail was set at $300,000.

Yeakey was employed as an administrative specialist at the Deer Ridge prison in Madras.
