FARGO – The Cass County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday, Sept. 26, it is investigating a report made by a jail inmate regarding a sexual offense that allegedly involved a former correctional officer.

The sheriff’s office said it asked the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation to help with the investigation “to maintain complete transparency and a non-biased investigation.”

The inmate made the report on Sept. 9, and the BCI was asked to join the investigation on Sept. 11, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office said the person who made the report is no longer in custody at the jail. It was unclear whether the correctional officer left the position as a result of the allegations.
