HOPKINSVILLE, KY (WSMV) -

A Christian County deputy jailer is accused of having sex with a former inmate.

Brandon Hawkins, 38, is suspected of an inappropriate relationship with the woman, while she was still under the supervision of the Department of Corrections, according to Kentucky State Police.

KSP arrested Hawkins Friday on two counts of third-degree rape, one count of third-degree sodomy and one count of first-degree official misconduct.

Hawkins, who is one of the sheriff's department's K-9 handlers, was suspended with pay on Wednesday, after the agency was informed of the KSP investigation, but his status has since changed to suspended without pay.

He was booked into the Christian County Jail, and KSP is continuing its investigation.
