WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) — A former Alabama prison worker is free on bail after being charged with sex crimes involving two minors.

A local news outlet reports that 23-year-old Daniel Sexton of Millbrook was charged with rape, two counts of sodomy and facilitating the travel of a child for a sex act. Arrested on Friday, he was released on bonds totaling $240,000 on Sunday and ordered to stay away from the alleged victims.

Millbrook Police Chief P.K. Johnson says Sexton was a correctional officer with Alabama’s prison system.

The Department of Corrections says he resigned on Sept. 2.
