A warrant has been issued for a former Delaware County Sheriff's Office employee.

Justin Paquette, a former detention officer, is accused of rape and sexual battery on an inmate.

The sheriff said even though the contact appears to have been consensual, it is illegal for jail employees to have sex with inmates.

The second allegation of sexual battery was made by a male inmate after learning of the ongoing investigation.
