A former York County Sheriff’s office jailer who is accused of having sex with a female inmate while on duty inside the jail was arrested Thursday.

Brandon Anthony Hay, 24, was charged with misconduct in office, York County jail records show.

Hay was charged by agents with South Carolina’s State Law Enforcement Division after York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson asked for SLED to investigate.
