An inmate who was in jail for sexual assault has been charged after he exposed himself to a correctional officer.

The inmate, William Jones, was at the Jack Harwell Detention Center for an aggravated sexual assault of a child charge from March of 2016, jail records say. 

On Sept. 7, Jones arrived for his work assignment in the J-Wing and asked the correctional officer to step inside the vestibule area so he could speak to her. 

The correctional officer said Jones was acting in a nervous manner and speaking in a low voice, causing her to be concerned about his safety.

According to the arrest affidavit, Jones asked the correctional officer what time headcount was to be conducted and then pulled out his genitals and ejaculated. 

He was then arrested on an indecent exposure charge, a class-B misdemeanor.
