A complaint has been signed but has not yet been filed with Ramsey County District Court, according to Devils Lake police Detective Sue Schwab.

The incident is alleged to have occurred July 3 in a jail cell, she said.

The correctional officer, whose name has not been released, is no longer employed by the law enforcement center, Schwab said.

The charge, which she said stems from the correctional officer being in a position of authority, carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
