VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A sheriff’s deputy has been charged with sexually assaulting a female inmate in a Clark County, Washington jail as the woman was preparing for a transfer to an Oregon facility.

Christopher A. North made a first court appearance Thursday morning and says he is “zero threat to anybody.”

The Columbian reports (https://bit.ly/2eRui9g) that the 29-year-old is accused of locking the woman in a changing room and then masturbating on her.

North is being housed in Skamania County. He has been with the department for more than two years.

His bail was set at $50,000 prior to an arraignment next month.
