Detention Officer Arrested In Marshall

An officer who works at a juvenile detention center has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting a minor at the center. 37 year old David Riley, a Harrison County Detention Officer for 3 years, was taken into custody Tuesday on a sexual assault charge and a charge of "violation of civil rights of a person in custody" at the Willoughby Juvenile Detention Center.

Investigators are currently checking to see if this is a symptom of an ongoing problem.

"Of course we take all complaints seriously and especially those pertaining to children, we definitely take it seriously until we complete our investigation you just have to wait an see what happens," said Captain Mike Alexander of the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.

Another employee of the Willoughby Juvenile Detention Center in Marshall lodged the complaint against Riley.
