PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - An Oakland County sheriff's deputy has been charged with criminal sexual conduct on accusations that he had sex with a prisoner.

The sheriff's department says the 24-year-old woman voluntarily had sex with Deputy Garry D. Jackson but says Michigan law makes sexual contact with prisoners a crime because they can't give consent.

The 52-year-old deputy has been a jail guard since 1997. He was arraigned Monday on a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, which can carry a penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

He's free on a $5,000 personal bond. The Associated Press left a phone message for Jackson seeking comment Monday afternoon.

Undersheriff Michael McCabe says "Jackson has brought dishonor to the badge and violated public trust." McCabe says it's moving to fire him.
