A woman jailed for driving under the influence of alcohol in Jones County claims she was sexually assaulted in a holding cell.Shortly after midnight on Friday, the state highway patrol booked a woman, whose name they are not releasing, into the jail for a DUI, according to Sherriff Alex Hodge.
Hodge said the woman was disorderly and was placed alone into a male holding cell. Several hours later, four other men were placed into the same cell with her, and during that time she claims she was assaulted.
Hodge admits the three jailers on duty that night violated procedures. He said those deputies have been fired.
