BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A former police officer in suburban Birmingham was arrested on a charge of engaging in sexual conduct with a female prisoner.
Attorney General Steve Marshall’s office says 51-year-old David Wayne Montgomery of Orange Beach surrendered to authorities in Jefferson County on a charge of custodial sexual misconduct.
He is now free on a bond of $15,000.
A statement says Montgomery previously worked as a police officer in Trussville, where he was accused of having sexual contact with a prisoner at the city jail.
Court records weren’t immediately available to show whether Montgomery had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
