Second jail employee pleads not guilty in misconduct case

BRETT ROBINSONWashington County Jail technician Brett Lindsey Robinson pleaded not guilty to sexual misconduct with an inmate at her arraignment Friday morning, Aug. 29.

An indictment released Friday outlined 12 counts against Robinson for her actions early this year, including six felony charges of first-degree custodial sexual misconduct and six counts of first-degree official misconduct.

Robinson, 30, is the second jail employee in a month to be charged with custodial sexual misconduct. Jill Ann Curry, 38, was charged with sexual misconduct with the same inmate that occurred between May and June. Neither woman knew of the other’s activities with the jail inmate.

Curry, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, goes to trial Dec. 10.

Robinson and her attorney, Paul Hood, are scheduled to appear at a Sept. 15 pre-trial conference.
