LE MARS, Iowa (AP) - Plymouth County has fired a jailer accused of sexually harassing a co-worker and eavesdropping on other staff members.

Court records say Daniel Kersbergen, 27, of Le Mars, is charged with misdemeanor assault and electronic eavesdropping. A court hearing on his case is scheduled for Sept. 29. A public phone listing for Kersbergen couldn’t be found. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.

According to a Plymouth County news release, a co-worker said Kersbergen had made sexually suggestive remarks to her and used his stun gun to intimidate her. During an internal investigation of the allegations, officers found a recording device in the jail that they suspect Kersbergen had placed to record other staffers without their consent.
