An Orange County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Friday on suspicion of sex assaults on two women in Orange County Jail.
Arcadio Rodriguez, 30, was booked in the Theo Lacy Jail in the city of Orange. He is accused of molesting inmates and showing them pornographic videos while in custody in the Central Women’s Jail in Santa Ana, said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
The alleged groping started in May and occurred multiple times separately with the two inmates, Braun said.
Sheriff’s officials became aware of the conduct on Monday and were moving to fire the deputy, she said.
