BAKER COUNTY, Fla. - A Baker County Corrections Officer is behind bars, facing charges of sexual battery on a person over 12 years of age by a correctional officer.
Tarrece Givens, 27, allegedly engaged in a sex act with a female inmate housed at the Baker County Detention Center while on duty in January, according to a release from the Baker County Sheriff's Office.
Givens had been employed with the Baker County Sheriff's Office Detention Center since Sept. 2011, the release states.

An investigation is ongoing and additional information is expected to be released at a later date.
