Franklin County Jail guard resigns in sex case

PASCO, Wash. - A Franklin County Jail corrections officer accused of having sex with an inmate has resigned while under investigation.

The sheriff's office said Tuesday that 41-year-old Justin Husom resigned after being questioned about reports he had consensual sex with a woman in return contraband, apparently a razor.

The Tri-City Herald reports Husom and the woman both initially denied having any sexual contact.

The state attorney general's office is reviewing the case.
