CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Natrona County detention officer has been charged with a misdemeanor after authorities say he was responsible for leaking information about a sexual assault case.

Brendon Littau was charged on July 22 with illegally disclosing information that authorities said should have been known only to law enforcement and the person who reported being assaulted.

Casper attorney Andrew Sears, who is representing Littau, declined to comment about the case Tuesday.

According to the court documents, Littau disclosed the names of those involved in a rape investigation to a relative who shared the information with the suspect in the assault case. The suspect then contacted the person who reported the assault.

Authorities say the information leak did not jeopardize the rape investigation, and the suspect was arrested.
