Jailer Behind Bars
By CJ Cassidy
But as soon as allegations about his head jailer surfaced, Sheriff Carl Hefner says he asked the Missouri Highway Patrol to investigate.
Now 51-year-old David Currie of Dexter, faces four counts of distribution of a controlled substance.
Currie admitted to police he gave prescription medicines to some inmates, along with alcohol and tobacco. According to police reports, he explains he wanted to "keep problems down inside the jail."
He also said he never got anything in return, but the girls would on occasion "flash him by pulling up their shirts and rubbing up against him."
"I believed he was a good person and a good jail administrator and naturally it's a disappointment to all of us," Sheriff Hefner says. The Sheriff didn't share Currie's mug shot with us, for security reasons.
