MILWAUKEE --  Investigators with the Milwaukee County sheriff's office said they believe one of their male corrections officers was having sex with a female inmate.

The sheriff's office has handed the case over to the District Attorney and is recommending multiple counts - including second-degree sexual assault, obstruction, and misconduct in public office.
The officer was sent to the Waukesha county jail, to avoid the conflict of being jailed by his co-workers, and has since bonded out.
The DA's office said they expect a decision about the case by the end of the week.
