Brett Robinson and Jill Curry are both civilian workers at Washington County Jail, a correctional facility in Oregon, who have been arrested — separately weeks apart — for allegedly having sex with the same inmate. Both face several felony counts.
The 32-year-old Brett Robinson and the 38-year-old Jill Curry (mugshot photos above; larger images below) were arrested as the result of separate investigations. Robinson’s is the more recent arrest. Both were employed as jail services technicians at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro, Oregon.
According to The Oregonian, quoting official sources, Brett Robinson surrendered for arrest after she was indicted by a grand jury and on six counts of first-degree custodial sexual misconduct, a felony charge as well as six counts of first-degree official misconduct, a misdemeanor charge. She had worked at the jail since January 2013 and has been placed on unpaid leave.
The report notes that both Robinson and Curry as jail services technicians had responsibilities including “booking, inmate units and the control center.”
Jill Curry was arrested in early July and, according to The Hillsboro Tribune initially was charged with first-degree custodial misconduct with an inmate After her arraignment in court on July 28 she faced six counts of first-degree custodial misconduct with an inmate and faced 22 more charges which include identity theft. She pleaded not guilty on all charges. She had worked at the jail since 2004.
The Oregonian notes that according to a spokesman, Sgt. Bob Ray, the women are believed to have been unaware of each other’s inappropriate involvement with the inmate. He did not specify exactly when or where the alleged sexual contact took place, but said, “We believe that they took advantage of specific locations at specific times.”
As for the inmate who is the alleged victim, the newspaper quotes official jail records that show he is being held for charges in four separate cases and faces several accusations that include “tampering with a witness, sexual harassment, failure to register as a sex offender, false swearing, harassment, second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.”
