Edgar Co., IL. (ECWd) –
More offensive sexual related videos have apparently surfaced coming out of the Edgar County Jail.
This time an Edgar County Sheriff’s Corrections Officer (CO), apparently videoed a prisoner being strip-searched, while the CO was singing a rap song about strip searches, and then the CO posted it to social media.
We understand a corrections officer was placed on administrative leave in March of 2022 for the strip search video, which is the same corrections officer we posted about yesterday with the prisoner’s lewd acts on the toilet video being posted to TikTok.
“A video was posted on social media made by [a corrections officer], which showed a strip search and the CO singing a rap song about strip search. It was reported to the Sheriff’s Office and the video was evidently taken down, very soon thereafter. The CO was placed on administrative leave about March 21, 2022, or so, based on this and other things.”
Yes, we left the names out of these articles as we are waiting on responses to our Freedom of Information Act requests on three separate corrections officers and may need to request records on a fourth one.
Once we receive the proper public records, we will publish all of them as we always have.
