An East Carroll Sheriff's Office deputy and an inmate at the Bossier Medium Security Facility have been arrested, accused of conspiring to have sex with one another.
Authorities say the arrests come after a two week investigation by Bossier Parish detectives. Deputy Sheriff Donald R. Lewis, 38, of Lake Province, LA was arrested Monday at the Bossier Medium Security Facility.
Detectives learned that Lewis was conspiring with a male inmate, Shaquille King, 20, to meet up and have sex. Investigators also learned the two men conspired to bring tobacco, alcohol and marijuana to the corrections facility.
Officials with the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office said Lewis drove 3 1/2 hours in his own vehicle to meet King at the Sheriff's Office pistol range, where King was serving as a trusty inmate. Both Lewis and King admitted they have known each other for years.
Investigators say they learned of their plan and intervened.
Lewis is charged with Conspiracy to commit malfeasance in office - sexual conduct, conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, and conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution. His bond is set at $85,000.
King is charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance, conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and three counts of inciting a felony. His bond is set at $50,000.
