Former EBRSO prison employee arrested for solicitation
BATON ROUGE - A former employee of the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office was arrested for solicitation of prostitution Monday, according to the Sheriff's office.
Jordan Zachary, 20, was employed by the EBRSO as a security worker at the parish prison for about seven months.
Reports indicate Zachary met a woman through friends around eight months ago, and his conversations with her became sexual in nature about a month ago. The woman contacted the East Rouge Sheriff's Office via Facebook on Sunday and told deputies that Zachary sent her a Facebook message that referenced her making extra money in exchange for sexual favors. The online conversation was turned over to detectives for further investigation.
Zachary was terminated from his position with the Sheriff's office, and he will be booked into the parish prison on charges of solicitation of prostitution.
