HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A deputy at a central Kansas jail is accused of having illegal sexual relations with a female inmate and bribing or intimidating two others.

Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson announced the charges Tuesday against 30-year-old Jonathan Diaz. Henderson says he asked the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to get involved after learning of the allegations two weeks ago.

District Attorney Keith Schroeder, who filed the charges, told The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/12KbJng ) the sexual contact charge involves a female inmate more than 18 years old. Schroeder says the two alleged victims of bribery and intimidation are also older than 18.

Diaz remained jailed Tuesday on $100,000 bond, with a status hearing scheduled June 4. He does not yet have a lawyer.
