A Lake County jail corrections officer has been charged after a food service contractor accused him of touching her butt and making a sexual gesture towards her, authorities said.
Lake County corrections officer Darin Chansky, 49, of the 2800 block of 55th Avenue in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was charged with battery on February 23.
An Aramark Food Service contract employee said that Chansky made an inappropriate sexual gesture towards her in front of jail inmates in December. She also said that in January Chansky touched her butt in front of jail inmates.
Sheriff’s officials said that Chansky has been an employee for over 22 years. He was placed on administrative leave with pay after the investigation began.
Chansky turned himself in on a warrant and was released on a signature bond. He is scheduled to appear in court again on March 5.
