A Jail Services Technician with Washington County has been arrested for sexual misconduct.  Jill Curry is a civilian employee.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office isn't releasing details of what she's accused of doing.  The investigation began with a tip on July 8.

That same day, Curry was placed on administrative leave pending the completion of an external criminal investigation. Sheriff Pat Garrett contacted the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office to request a comprehensive independent criminal investigation. 

Wednesday, Curry, was arrested and booked into the Washington County Jail. She is held on $120,000 bail. She is charged with six counts of first degree Custodial Sexual Misconduct and six counts of first degree Official Misconduct. 

Sheriff Pat Garrett said, "While there's a presumption of innocence in our justice system, this employee is accused of extremely serious misconduct. If the allegations are found to be true, then this employee completely violated my trust and the public's trust and will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately." 

The criminal investigation is ongoing and no additional information will be released at this time.
