Hardin County's deputy jailer is now behind bars accused of taking cash and sex to let prisoners out of jail.
Kentucky State Police arrested 32-year-old Shadrick Blackmon of Radcliff Friday.
Troopers say they were alerted by the Hardin County Jailer earlier this week, who was concerned that one of his deputies had solicited cash or sexual favors to get an inmate illegally out of jail.
Blackmon is being held at the Laurel County Jail.
He's been employed at the Hardin County Jail for less than a year.
