A deputy with the Chatham County Sheriff's Office was indicted by a grand jury on four charges including sexual assault against a person in custody. 

Shelton Crowder engaged in sexual contact with an inmate in August 2012, according to the indictment. He is charged with sexual assault, public indecency, two counts of making false statements to deputies and obstruction of an officer. 

It is unclear if Crowder is still employed with the Chatham County Sheriff's Office.
