Ex-Murray jailer sentenced for sexual contact with inmate

CHATSWORTH, Georgia (WDEF) – A former jailer in Murray County has been sentenced for sexual contact with an inmate.

26-year old Bryson Wallace Starks was sentenced to five years in prison and ten years of probation.

He will also have to register as a sex offender upon his release.

Starks pleaded guilty last month.

The Sheriff’s Department alerted the GBI last year about possible inappropriate conduct.

The GBI investigator says Jones confessed to having the sexual relationship, other inmates were aware of it, and there was incriminating correspondence between the two.
