Polk County jailer accused of assaulting 5 inmates
A former Polk County jailer is due in court Friday on charges of sexually assaulting at least five female inmates.
Forty-eight-year-old Darryl Christensen, of Amery, is facing five felony counts of second-degree sexual assault by a corrections officer. Prosecutors say the jailer had sex with the women while they were incarcerated at the Polk County Jail between 2011 and 2014.
A criminal complaint says the jailer would take the inmates to a secluded area where there were no video cameras.
