The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Volusia County Division of Corrections sergeant today on a charge that he had a sexual encounter with an inmate.

The officer, 31-year-old Christopher L. Harvey of Port Orange, is charged with sexual misconduct between a detention facility employee and an inmate, a felony.

Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office Major Case Unit started investigating the case in October at the request of Volusia County Corrections’ Internal Affairs Division. The incident happened at the Volusia County Correctional Facility at 1354 Indian Lake Road, Daytona Beach. The investigation showed that Harvey received oral sex from a female inmate in a laundry room while he was supervising an overnight laundry detail. The incident was witnessed by another inmate.

Harvey turned himself in this afternoon at the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office Operations Center in Daytona Beach, where he was taken into custody to be transported to the Flagler County Jail on $5,000 bond. He was taken to the Flagler jail due to his employment with Volusia County.
