Franklin County corrections officer charged with sexual misconduct

WASHINGTON STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL NEWS RELEASE -- The Attorney General’s Office has charged a Franklin County corrections officer with two counts of custodial sexual misconduct in the first degree.

The state alleges Justin Thomas Husom had sexual contact with two separate female inmates at the Franklin County jail while serving as a correction officer at the facility.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. The Franklin County Prosecutor referred the case to the AGO to avoid the appearance of conflict.

Franklin County Superior Court issued a summons for Husom to appear in court for arraignment on May 20, 2014.

Assistant Attorney General Tienney Milnor is lead counsel on this case.
