Police: No crimes in Pa. jail flashing incidents

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — Police have determined no crimes were committed when a female inmate reportedly “flashed” and “performed” for employees at a southwestern county jail.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/14Tfghw ) report Tuesday that city police have closed their investigation, which began after guards recently found sexually explicit material in the woman’s cell that seemed to suggest some employees might have been engaged in sexual activity.

County commissioner and prison board chairman Larry Maggi says, “I’m trying to put it as gentle and sensitive as I can, but there are problems that occur while working in a correction facility that have to do with aberrant behavior of an inmate.”

But police say they found no evidence of sexual contact after interviewing the women and guards.

Warden John Temas is reviewing the incident as a “personnel matter.”

The inmate is awaiting trial on assault charges.
