Barry County Jail officer facing felony charges

HASTINGS (WKZO) -- Former Barry County jail officer Wayne Hoffman is facing two felony and two misdemeanor charges for allegedly soliciting female inmates for sex. The 44-year-old has resigned, and Sheriff Dar Leaf said the allegations "caught us by surprise."

The Barry County Prosecutor's office notes Hoffman is not accused of having sex with the women, but did get one inmate to perform sexual acts on herself and another while he watched. He is due back in court on August 20th for a preliminary hearing and has pled not guilty.
