A former worker with the Robeson County pretrial release program has been accused of having sex with a woman in custody.

Hollis Britt faces charges of sexual misconduct by a custodian and crimes against nature. He was arrested by State Bureau of Investigation agents and Lumberton police officers on Thursday and released under a $20,000 bond the same day.

A bailiff, a supervisor of bailiffs, and a jailer also suspected of having sex with the woman either retired or were fired in early October 2007.

The victim was involved in the pretrial release program, and the alleged misconduct took place at her home and the courthouse, authorities said.

Investigators have not released more details about the alleged misconduct, including how long it took place.
