GROVETOWN, Ga. (WRDW) -- Grovetown's jail is running into another problem after two inmates escaped over the weekend.

GBI agents said 38-year-old Jon'eric Stripling is facing three counts of sexual assault on an inmate. Stripling works as a jailer at the jail and investigators say a female inmate told them Stripling touched her inappropriately in 2013.

The GBI has been investigating the claim for more than a year. The grand jury issued an arrest warrant earlier this month.

Stripling has since turned himself in.
